Orquesta Akokan's tour

Fan Reviews

March 30th 2024
Orquesta Akokan did not disappoint. This orchestra out of Havana Cuba, has embodied the soul and passion of the cuban music from the 50’s, reminiscent of the great Beni Moré bringing both the Mambo and ChaCha to life in their full glory . Fantastic vocals and charisma from their lead singer who entertained the crowd with his great dance moves. Not to mention some savory percussion blocks, which they broke into full blown rumbas within the consigns of their swinging style! Five Star Performance. Viva Cuba Carajo!

About Orquesta Akokan

When Orquesta Akokán burst onto the global music scene in 2018, their no-holds-barred 21st century take on the venerable Cuban mambo lit up stages around the world with a fierce and unremitting joy. Chulo Records producer and multi instrumentalist Jacob Plasse, and arranger Michael Eckroth joined forces with a carefully curated selection of Havana’s most extraordinary musicians as Orquesta Akokán, polishing Cuban mambo’s golden sound to a luminous, contemporary sheen. Along the way Orquesta Akokán imbued these legendary Cuban grooves with a renewed vitality and powerful sense of akokán ---the Yoruba word used by Cubans to mean “from the heart” or “soul.”
