CaboCubajazz’s Appearance at The 12th Penang Island Jazz Festival 2015 is Supported By Fonds Podium Kunsten NL
In an inimitable way, CaboCubaJazz blends the melancholy of the morna (Cape Verdean blues), the joyful dance of the (also Cape Verdean) coladera with a generous portion of sweeping Cuban rumba, salsa and jazz – the result: 100%
Both the listener and the dancer are taken on a journey where desire, passion, subtlety and musical fire alternate. Their debut album Rikeza y Valor received enthusiastic response worldwide when it was released in 2012 and was elected ‘Best World Music CD’ by Dutch journalists, selected in four categories for the Latin Grammy and was nominated four times at the Cabo Verde Music Awards 2012.
Members of the band consist of leader Nils Fischer on percussion, Carlos Matos on piano, Dina Medina on vocals, Yerman Aponte on bass, Armando Vidal on drums, Alberto Caicedo on vocals, Joe Rivera on trumpets and Juanga
La kunza on trombone.
