Del Barrio prides itself as being one of Melbourne's premier Latin Band. Since the mid 1990's they have entertained audiences with its saucy tunes.
It's repertoire is strongly influenced by the New York Latin bands of the 1970s. Ray Barreto, Ruben Blades, Celia Cruz, El Gran Combo, and Tito Puente are just some of the artists that inspire their music.
Gualberto Casas, lead singer and founder of the band, is a gifted performer who is able to transport us to that era of classic and sophisticated salsa. He and the band can boast as having a passionate following and has played to sell-out audiences across Australia and internationally and they consitently draws large crowds wherever they perform
