La 33 is a Colombian salsa band formed in 2002 by brothers Sergio (Director and bass) and  Santiago Mejía (piano) and vocalist Guillermo Celis. The band’s name comes from the street in Bogotá where they used to rehearse, and their sound is heavily influenced by the city’s vibrant music scene.

La 33, known for their high-energy performances and unique blend of salsa, funk, jazz, and rock, stands out in the crowded Latin music scene with infectious rhythms, catchy melodies, and a powerful horn section.

Drawing inspiration from the golden era of New York salsa and infusing it with their own Colombian flair, the band’s instrumentation features a strong horn section consisting of two trombones, tenor and baritone saxophone, trumpet, as well as flute, piano, bass, timbales, congas, and bongos, complemented by three vocalists.

The band has released several critically acclaimed albums, including their self-titled debut album “La-33” (2004), “Gozalo” (2007), “Ten Cuidado” (2009), “Tumbando Por Ahi” (2013), “Caliente” (2016), “Si Tú Quieres Salsa Lado A” (2019), “Si Tú Quieres Salsa Lado B” (2020), “La-33 Filarmónico” (2023). The band’s music has been featured in films, television shows, and commercials around the world, further increasing their popularity.

They have toured extensively around the world, performing at some of the biggest music festivals and venues in Europe, North and South America.

With their energetic live performances and extensive discography, Orquesta La 33 continues to solidify their status as one of Colombia’s most beloved musical exports. From the streets of Bogotá to stages around the globe, their infectious rhythms and dynamic blend of genres have captivated audiences of all backgrounds. As they continue to push the boundaries of salsa music, they inspire dancers and music lovers alike to embrace the power of salsa dura.
