the impeccable label branches out with its first Spanish language album, capturing a big band collective of Havana's top musicians - both young & old - joining forces with some of the most creative & spirited talents of New York's Latin music scene.

the group reinvigorates the sound of the golden era of Cuban mambo with a bold new energy. Featuring all-original music cut live to tape over a three-day session at Havana's hallowed, state-run Estudios Areito, the group's self-titled debut feels like a heartfelt gift from the band to listener. Fans of the warm, latin sounds of Buena vista social club, la mambanegra, rio mira, mista Savona & dayme arocena will adore this as much as we do! “mambo madness! joyous Cuban grooves” 8/10 – uncut.
