Mardi Gras Video with Orqesta Salsabuena: Negra Zandugera

Debbie plays trombone on this premier of Negra Zandugera, an original salsa song by Phil Morales and the Orqesta SalsaBuena! This Mardi Gras Festival is the first public appearance of the song with a full salsa band, and I’m proud to be part of it! Phil’s dream was 10 years in the making. It’s quite an accomplishment to finally hear his original music performed with our 10+ piece salsa band!
