A fifth studio album from Salsa Celtica performing their own special blend of Latin and Scottish music.

Following on from a mini-tour of Scotland's Highlands and Islands the group, who now have been playing together in excess of 17 years, composed and developed material resulting in a mature, rich and soulful collection of tunes. 

For the first time tracks have been developed from traditional Scottish Gaelic songs resulting in an equal balance between the two cultures.

Seventeen musicians, an international cast Scotland, Cuba, Ireland, Argentina and England with special guest Gaelic singer, Kathleen MacInnes, Jarlath Henderson on uilleann pipes and London percussionist, David Pattman. 

Renowned for their hard rocking dance floor filling Celtic salsa, The Tall Islands is a more folkloric sounding album to sit down, listen and enjoy!
