¡Cubanismo!: Cuban Jazz With 14-Piece Band
Echoplex (Los Angeles, CA)
The 14-piece Cuban son band ¡Cubanismo! invades L.A.’s Echoplex with their tropical musical mix of danzon, rumba and cha-cha. Led by Havana native and trumpeter Jesus Alemany, this Grammy-nominated group includes some of the best ex-pat players on the planet, on timbales, horns, bongos, piano and vocals. They’ll get the Latin dance groove going in the best descarga jam-band tradition, with a polished retro-contemporary sound, as heard on their most popular tunes, including “Mambo U.K.,” “Mulence,” “Paso en Tampa” and more.
