Edgardo & Candela

“Edgardo & Candela” is a Salsa Band based in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 36 years, making us one of the most established Salsa Orchestras in California.

The instrumentation is piano, bass, trombone, sax, flute, guitar, conga drums, bongo drums, timbales and vocalists. Smaller versions of the band are available upon request, while always maintaining the musical integrity of the genre.

Better known as simply “Candela,” their trade mark is their high energy level performance, featuring great vocals, a tight rhythm section and the powerful sound of the horns. The band features the crop of professional musicians in the Bay Area, which makes for an incredible musical experience every time they play!

During the evening, Edgardo will personally assure that everyone is entertained while he mixes singing tunes by Oscar De León, Marc Anthony, Eddie Palmieri, Rubén Blades, Tito Puente, Guaco, Pete “Conde” Rodriguez, Celia Cruz and Ray Barretto among others, but the real treat here is Edgardo’s original music, presenting him as a mature composer and poetic lyricist.

“Edgardo & Candela” Features:

Edgardo Cambon – Congas, Lead Vocals, Composer and Band Leader
Pedro Pastrana – Cuatro / Guitar and Vocals
Jeff Cressman – Trombone
Omar Ledezma – Bongó or Timbales and Vocals
Marco Diaz – Piano and Vocals
