NY's #1 Latin Fusion Group

SEGUIDA is a name that is very recognizable to the ardent Latin music aficionado. The NY Village Voice called them “THE SON'S OF SANTANA!” From their inception in 1972, Fania Record artists, Seguida had paved the way for the genre of Latin Rock to blossom. They are the PIONNERS OF EAST COAST LATIN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC! Their distinctive “East Coast” Afro-Cuban-Salsa-Rock sound grew out of the barrios of the Bronx, NY and has continued to delight audiences all over the world in present times. Seguida has now been chosen by MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL to be part of MLB.com's MAJOR LEAGUE ARTIST SERIES! MLB has created a special MLB/SEGUIDA webpage with all new music videos, band interviews and much more! Included as part of the Fania All Stars, Seguida has toured extensively throughout the world, spreading their infectious sounds of Latin-Rock-Jazz as they shared the stage with such great music stars as BOB MARLEY, SANTANA, MALO, CAMEO, GQ, BILLY JOEL, ELTON JOHN, Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Hector LaVoe, Willie Colon, and the list goes on. Their two albums on the Fania Music Label (Love is...Seguida, & On Our Way To Tomorrow...Seguida) still continue to enjoy record sales all over the world. Produced by the team of Steve Adorno/Kevin Zambrana, Seguida brings tradition plus new innovations to the genre of Latin-Rock Alternative music. Continuing with their tradition of using English vocals and Spanish Soneros to top off a hot salsa-soul-rock feel has proven to be a successful formula for Seguida. Seguida combines flavors of R&B, Hip-Hop, & Jazz to round out the new sounds of Seguida. SEGUIDA recently performed two High Powered shows at the HIGHLINE BALLROOM & BLENDER THEATER in NEW YORK CITY.
