|The Salsa Youth Orchestra|
The Salsa Youth Orchestra was started in May of 2005 by Tony Ruiz (band
leader of Orquesta Tropikiimba) and three Richmond VA music students.
Initially it was just percussion, bass and piano. The trio was set up to
train the three young musicians to play Salsa or Afro-Caribbean music in
general, so that they could play with Tropikiimba in the event that
Tropikiimba would ever need a substitute musician for a show. In the
process of training these three students more kids were recruited for the
band finally evolving into what is now the Salsa Youth Orchestra.
