Pa’lante has been one of Portland’s favorite Latin bands for decades, playing Latin jazz, salsa, cumbia, merengue and timba for listening and dancing. The band has a very tight, professional sound, and features a combination of fantastic musicians from the genesis of the band, along with some outstanding new players.

A typical Pa’lante set moves from cookin’ Latin jazz to spicy hot salsa, to cumbia, merengue, bolero, and cha cha cha, all designed especially for dancing, and even seated listeners can’t help but respond to the compelling rhythms.
