The enthusiasm, energy and good response from the public pushed them to create, practice and compose, allowing their music to travel from bars to Italian radio stations. They were thus put into the public eye, thanks also to the fact that they supported a few important concerts (Modena City Ramblers, Punkreas, Ministri, Ska-J), a small tour in Spain and the winning of some competitions and contests. In January 2011 they met Mustafa Cengic aka Muce, ex musician of No Smoking Orchestra, now artistic producer and sound engineer. Following a few months of rehearsals, they recorded their first studio album “Just Married”. The CD ensembles the essence of what they, as Rumba de Bodas, represent: a musical encounter between different identities and cultures, so that the energies of diverse styles unite in a common artistic and musical journey. It is this very mix of genres, from latina to swing, balcanica to reggae, soul to folk, which gives life to a spectacularly interesting explosion, without however forgetting to express and convey that which they are. Professional and amateur musician friends helped them during recording, contributing their distinct sounds to Rumba de Bodas’ “Just Married” album.
