La Excelencia is a young Latin dance music orchestra in the United States founded by percussionists Jose Vazquez-Cofresi and Julian Silva in 2001. La Excelencia's first album: "Salsa Con Conciencia" released by Handle With Care Productions Inc. in 2006, quickly gained the orchestra respect in the salsa world. La Excelencia is known for both its danceable salsa dura sound, and speaking about social issues in every day life. The song topics performed by La Excelencia make this a rather distinctive orchestra particularly appealing to younger generations of salseros and to salsa aficionados alike. La Excelencia is bringing salsa back to a generation that has forgotten its roots, and to those that have been waiting patiently for salsa's return. The orchestra often tours worldwide.
