Conjunto Guantanamo
World Music Band
New York, USA

Current Score: ★★☆☆☆ ☆☆


Conjunto Guantánamo - Ambassadors of Cuban Folklore - have arrived with a freshly interpreted, classic Afro-Cuban sound. Lively percussion, pounding syncopated bass lines, exotic trumpet melodies, uninhibited improvisation and the sultry, dynamic lead vocal of Pepito Gomez positively scorch in a variety of vintage and original compositions. With a soulful sound is layered with authentic Cuban swing and sophisticated influences, their performances sometimes transition into extended experimental Afro-Cuban improvisational jam sessions. The band inspires thousands of New Yorkers and international fans alike to swivel their hips in the name of Latin passion. Since Conjunto Guantánamo, the ambassadors of Cuban folklore, was founded in 2003, they’ve become highly visible on the NYC nightlife scene, performing at festivals, dance parties, events and venues as diverse as Lincoln Center’s Boro-Linc: La Casita, What a Wonderfull World 50th Anniversary Festival in conjunction with Louis Armstrong House Museum, The Gantries summer series and Lowell Folk Festival.

The Museum of Modern Art Founder Ulises Beato (director, conga, vocals) along with José Pepito Gomez (vocals, guitar, tres), Carlos Mena (bass, Vocals), Ittetsu Nasuda (piano), Oscar Oñoz (trumpet) and Mauricio Herrera (bongo) are the celebrated musicians who create this unique sound.
