“Simply one of the most exceptional Latin music projects in recent memory. An invigorating, dynamic group…. a vibrant celebration, potent and passionate music.” – WholeNote 

Juno-nominated Mazacote is a hard-hitting, six-piece world/Latin band with deep roots in the music of Nicaragua, Mozambique, and Colombia. Inspired by Afro-Caribbean percussion and tropical party sounds, they play brass-heavy Latin dance beats with a socially conscious message. Mazacote features powerful vocals combined with driving AfroCuban percussion and brassy mambos. They come out swinging hard, introducing their own take on some of salsa’s hardest grooves. Mazacote IS a Latin dance party! Daniel Avilan vocals, Frankie Hidalgo bass, Niho Takase piano, Chris Couto percussion, Elias Gomez congas, Malcolm Aiken trumpet
