What fans are saying

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!
