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. 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. “A groove as intense as a runaway train” hails NPR. Orquesta Akokán made their US debut in July 2018 (including a date at Lincoln Center), and will continue to tour internationally through the end of 2019 and beyond.
