Christian Pepin y Su Orquesta Bembé is a new San Francisco-based salsa group that truly embodies the soul of all salsa dancers young and old alike.

Originally created and produced by 2X GRAMMY® Award Winning Percussionist Christian Pepin and Pianist Erick Peralta. The concept is very simple, a 10 piece band with the sound and elegant sophistication of a big orchestra. A very unique sound when it pertains to Salsa, Latin Jazz, Traditional Cuban and Tropical Pop.

The band is led by Co-Leader Christian Pepin & Erick Peralta who handle the roles of Percussionist, Pianist as well as Arranger and Musical Directors. Along with Bembé you have along a all star rhythm section with musicians like GRAMMY® Award Winning Percussionist Carlos Caro on Congas and Oscar Soltero on Bongo.

On Bass, you have Cuba's very own Ernesto Mazar Kindelán a talented (Composer/Arranger) and master of his own style and interpretation when it pertains to Latin Music.

The Piano accompaniment is led by Co-Leader/Arranger/Composer/Piano virtuoso Erick Peralta. A fierce piano player who some call the next Papo Luca meets Chick Corea meets Monk! A true gem and very important member of the band.

On Baritone Sax/Flute and Tenor Sax we have the great Galen Green, an amazing Jazz/Latin Jazz musician Arranger/Composer.

On Trombones we have Mike Rinta a GRAMMY® Award Winning well respected Trombonist as well as Arrangers and Composers.

Last but not least, on Trumpet Mr. Bill Ortega III. A well respected Trumpeter/Vocalist and Musical Director for Orq. Boriquen.

On Vocals we have Juan Luis Perez a multi-talented vocalist, producer, songwriter.

All these amazing musicians make the magic to Orquesta Bembé and I assure you, it's a sound you will never forget. Look out for this 10 piece ensemble, their intention is to play music that others can only dream of.
