Straight out of Havana, Cuba, comes Orquesta Akokán–a blazing ensemble of deeply soulful mambo reminiscent of Benny Moré, Pérez Prado, and banda gigante of the 1940’s and 50’s. Havana’s top musicians both young and old, join forces with some of the most creative and spirited talents of New York’s Latin music scene. Born out of a shared vision of singer José “Pepito” Gómez, producer Jacob Plasse, and arranger Michael Eckroth, the group reinvigorates the sound of the golden era of Cuban mambo with a bold new energy!
