Straight out of Havana, Cuba comes Orquesta Akokán - a blazing ensemble of deeply soulful mambo reminiscent of the 1940's and 50's. Bursting with an innate sense of soul, fine-tuned attention to sonic detail, and songcraft that’s timeless and immaculate, experience original songs by some of Cuba’s finest players. Robust, time-tested musical architectures of son cubano and mambo are honored and modernized through a synthesis of the rich compositional styles of Havana, New York, and beyond.
