Countless tours, festivals and sold out shows across Canada, the US, Malaysia and Philippines have earned Rumba Calzada the title of Canada's tightest Latin band.

Originally formed in 1991 by Boying Geronimo and now headed by his son, Raphael Geronimo, the band has recorded four albums with an array of nominations and awards, including a Juno Award (World Music Album of the Year), Westcoast Music Awards (Outstanding World Recording of the Year) and Independent Music Awards (Best Global Album).

With airplay and media praise around the globe, including Montreal, Miami, New York, LA, Columbia, Venezuela, Peru, Malaysia and Manila, Rumba Calzada is gearing up for more tours and recordings, with an all-new album planned for 2018.

Canadian based Rumba Calzada brought the house down with their eclectic mix of Latin, Salsa and Afro-Cuban rhythms.
