Founded by Cristobal Oquendo and Antonio Betanzos, Esencia Latina Band is made up of a diverse group of 13 professional musicians from the Omaha and Lincoln area and has dominated Omaha’s Latin scene ever since its foundation. The contagious salsa music and big band sound has taken them to play gigs in venues ranging from Jazz on the Green to the Holland Center, and the Maha Festival. They are the winner of the OEA award for Best Ethnic Band. Esencia Latina Band’s mission is to share the best authentic Salsa & other traditional Latin music with Omaha, the Midwest, and beyond.
