Orquesta Mambarito went down a storm on their El Swing debut in February so make sure you reach!

Orquesta Mambarito plays red-hot salsa from the likes of Ray Barretto, Hector Lavoe and Ruben Blades. The 11-piece group has a classic line-up of trumpets, trombones, baritone sax and full Afro-Cuban rhythm section. It’s led by baritone player David Strahan and fronted by Colombian singer Fabian Velez.
