Septeto Charambó is the modern version of the popular 80’s salsa band Conjunto Charambó. Combining charanga and bomba rhythms from the Caribbean, the band was reinvented in 2022 and now delivers their unique salsa dura sound, keeping the rich traditions of Milwaukee salsa alive for the return of LIVE @ the Lakefront.
