As well as appearing at various prestigious international Festivals such as Blue Fest, Fiesta Festival, Bondi Latin American Festival, Sydney Festival, Qpac and Manly Jazz Festival, they've also had the privilege of sharing the stage with the greats of AfroCuban musicians such as Buena Vista Social Club, Los Van Van, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Sonora Carruseles, Hey Dunbar and many more. Sydney finally can experience one of Cuba's greatest exports to Australia Gonzalo Porta & The Sydney Salsa All Stars!
Gonzalo began singing and recording professionally at such as young age, that he was affectionately known as Gonzalito (little Gonzalo) in the Uruguayan music scene, a name that has stuck to this day. Due to his reputation, Gonzalo was also part of the Film "Aparte", a remarkable film aimed at the Uruguayan population. Now with eight gold records to his name, this acclaimed international singer/songwriter returns to Australia in 2016 keen to continue his successful music career.
