    Cecilia Tenconi  

After listening to Romance Latino, you will feel transported to a warm and magical place near the ocean, where the natives dance till dawn.

We have been performing together for 8 years in some of the country’s most prestigious venues, including the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia and the Renaissance Hotel in Washington D.C. The events range from weddings and bar mitzvahs to all types of corporate affairs, including the Award Ceremony for AMC for the year 2000.

Our specialty is music from South America and the Caribbean, sung in Spanish, Portuguese or English and performed in its most authentic form, including salsa, merengue, bossa nova, samba, cumbia, reggae, soca, bolero, cha-cha and tango. Cecilia Tenconi is Romance Latino’s bandleader, born and raised in Buenos Aires , Argentina, she has made New York City her home, allowing her to capture the essence of the truly bicultural experience between Latin and American music.

Romance Latino’s band members are all full time professional musicians with extensive credits and experience in the music business. The same musicians could provide you with the elegance of classical music or the sophistication of a jazz trio for the ceremony or cocktail hour, as well as the high energy of dance music, both Latin and American for a lively affair.

The band is available in several different configurations, from a trio for smaller affairs to an eight piece band with a three piece horn section. We are dedicated to tailor the music to your needs, planning ahead, to make your event enjoyable and worry free.
