A new salsa soul star is launched: Nolita Golding, who teams up with pianist Alex Wilson for a set of searing vocals, energy-packed songs plus a sprinkling of soul ballads all wrapped in Alex’s signature latin jazz piano sound with a backing band that packs a punch.  Performing new material plus Alex’s well known salsa dance floor hits, these two artists will be fresh from headlining the Saturday night Glastonbury Latino stage … this is a show not to be missed!

Nolita Golding

Nolita Golding was born in Coventry, England and is of mixed Spanish, English and Mexican (Mayan from Yucatán) heritage. Her first memories of music are singing by the piano with her grandmother, Eileen Golding, a key figure who set her on the path of music.  These formative beginnings prompted Nolita later in her career to use her grandmother's surname in her artist name, which she feels reflects her roots and mixed heritage.
