Official La Vida Buena website featuring news, music, videos, album info, tour dates, and more.


La Vida Buena may look the part, but they are not your typical salsa band from Austin. They have the usual suspects (like piano, congas, and timbales) but what happens on stage is much more than that. Their performances bring together sophisticated Latin riffs with elements of jazz and hip hop to create a unique style that keeps dancers in step and crowds grooving.
