Conjunto Karabali Conjunto Karabali is San Francisco’s newest and hottest Latin dance band, featuring some of the finest talent in the Bay Area. The band is co-led by two of the United States’ most renowned percussionists, Mike Spiro and Karl Perazzo, who have joined forces to create a group specifically for the dancer’s enjoyment. They describe Karabali’s style as “old school” salsa, and they bring to the Bay Area for the first time the traditional NY conjunto sound, popularized by Johnny Pacheco, Conjunto Clasico and Conjunto Libre. This band is about swing and joyful energy, and the dancers can’t wait to hit the floor when Karabali kicks into high gear. The band boasts a who’s-who of SF Latin music all-stars in its line-up, starting of course with its leaders, Mike and Karl. These two internationally recognized drummers have performed and recorded with almost every major Latin artist of the last 30 years, from Eddie Palmieri to Carlos Santana, from Tito Puente to Celia Cruz. This is to say nothing of their credits as producers, bandleaders, and clinicians. Their extensive recordings over the last 25 years include internationally recognized jazz, Latin-jazz and pop artists, for which they have each received multiple Grammies and Grammy nominations.
Comprised of the best latin music artists in the Bay Area and the hard driving swing they bring to every performance, it is no wonder that club owners and concert promoters throughout California can’t wait to get Conjunto Karabali on stage.
