Hecho a Mano is the emerging sound of salsa music in Austin, TX.
Hecho a Mano's music is woven from a tapestry of influences as rich and varied as the city that the band calls home. Conceived of by a Colombian percussionist, a specialist in East African musicology, and a lapsed jazz musician, the band has expanded to include university-trained composers, brass band members, and a guitar-wielding singer/songwriter.
Salsa is the music that brings them all together.
The result is music that is both rooted and daring. Classic tunes become fresh, while originals tap into the rich tradition of salsa’s history. Above all, it is music that makes you want to get up and dance!
