Lengaïa Salsa Brava is a Montreal-based 11-pieces orchestra created in 2012 by Latin and Guyanese trombone player Giany-Frantz Huyghues-Despointes. Its orchestral format of three trombones and a baritone saxophone gives it a unique sound color by its powerful and its harmony.

Like its birthplace, Montreal, Lengaïa is multicultural: its members proceed from no less than 6 different countries: French Guiana, Colombia, Peru, Quebec, Spain, Venezuela.

Lengaïa has accompanied several international artists from the world of salsa such as: Yoko Mimata (2016), Ismael Rivera Jr (2017), and the singer of Fania All Stars, Ismael Miranda (2017) and collaborated with Jimmy Bosch as special guest on GOLD DIGGERS E.P in 2019. Lengaïa is the winner of the Canada Latin Awards in the "Salsa Group of the Year" category for two consecutive years in 2017 and 2018.

Lengaïa has its musical residency at the Groove Nation in Montreal, where the orchestra performs every month, in addition to honoring several other perfomances throughout the year. The Toronto Salsa Festival, Montreal's Nuit Blanche, Gatineau Karamel Festival, Fiesta Olympica at the Olympic Park, Colombia Festival, are part of the long and non-exhaustive list of activities in which the band has performed.
