ˇBienvenidos a Toledo, Orquesta Akokán!

As part of Momentum, Orquesta Akokán performs in downtown Toledo on Friday, Sept. 14, 2018

According to its Facebook account, “Straight out of Havana, Cuba comes Orquesta Akokán - a blazing presentation of deeply soulful mambo reminiscent of Benny Moré and banda gigante of the 1940s and 1950s. The album boasts original songs and was recorded at the historic state run Areito Studio with Cuba’s finest players, young and old, led by the venerable and dynamic singer José “Pepito” Gómez, produced by Chulo Records' Jacob Plasse, with arrangements by Michael Eckroth.

“The ferocious and pedigreed wind and rhythm sections consist of musicians from storied groups including Irakere and Los Van Van. Robust, time-tested musical architectures of Cubano and mambo are honored and futurized through a synthesis of grammatical and compositional styles of Havana, New York, and beyond.
 

“Spring 2018 will find this brand new project released on Daptone Records; their first Spanish language album, one recorded outside of Daptone's studios, yet bursting with the label's innate sense of soul, fine-tuned attention to sonic detail, and songcraft that's timeless and immaculate.”
