SALVADOR ŞANGÓ (pronounced Shongó) world music orchestra is the brainchild of Sotiris Papadopoulos, a Greek who has been living and working outside Greece for the most part of his life. The band's name which, as it happens, is also Sotiris's artistic pseudonym, is not accidental: SALVADOR is the translation of Sotiris (saviour) in Spanish, whereas ŞANGÓ is the god of lightning, the protector of justice and the weak in the Yoruba pantheon, one of the most populous tribes in West Africa with a particular presence in music, dance and the arts in general.
