“The vocalist Pepito Gómez has a siren sound that reaches right back into the 1940s, when the punchy pop music known as mambo overtook Cuba. He’s embracing that affinity with a new 16-piece band, featuring some of the island’s greatest instrumentalists” (The New York Times).
Their new album, 2021’s 16 Rayos, is a scintillating release that showcases the expansive influence of the legendary Perez Prado and the telepathic cohesion of a now-veteran ensemble.
