Victor's new album Esperanza (released 10/12/17 – TSM Productions), is the brainchild of fusing Latin groove, Jazz stylings with a touch of Rock edge creating a signature sound in the genre of instrumental world fusion. Collaborating through the Internet (a new recording venture for Samalot), complimented his vision of a full organic vibe.
“Without question, download this album!You’ll never tire of the feeling you get from the music.” (Rebecca Cullen – Stereo Stickman)
"Esperanza is one of those albums you will never tire of; it has flare and charm and also manifests a wonderful sense of ambience as well. Esperanza is a collection of songs, created by Victor Samalot, a man who clearly loves to play from his soul and create a truly vivacious and pulsating rhythm whilst doing so; this is one album you’re never going to want to put down". (Steve Sheppard / One World Music Radio
Esperanza is a work of art and I hope that Mr.Samalot decides to keep going in this direction because he certainly has the mojo to play any type of Latin flavored music and make a direct impact on a listener. (Keith Hannaleck - MuzikMan Reviews - December 2017 / Adams, MA)
Big thanks to 107.3 The Wave for playing cuts off "Esperanza". So Cool!

“Vic was amazing today at the Westside Flea show. I was lucky enough to have a table right in front of the stage. Even though I was tired and my feet were hurting, I couldn't resist the urge to dance. His style is melodic and captivating with still being fresh and upbeat. Can't recommend him enough!” (Charlene – Arts Paradis / Oberlin, OH)
