Straight out of Havana, Cuba comes Orquesta Akokán - a blazing presentation of deeply soulful mambo reminiscent of Benny Moré and banda gigante of the 1940s and 50s. The ferocious and pedigreed wind and rhythm sections consist of musicians from storied groups including Irakere and Los Van Van. Robust, time-tested musical architectures of son cubano and mambo are honored and futurized through a synthesis of grammatical and compositional styles of Havana, New York, and beyond.
Orquesta Akokan tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Sep 2018.
