Samui International Jazz Music Festival 2012

A+ R A-


In an Inimitable way, the group blends  the melancholy of the morna [Cape Verdean blues], the joyful dance of the [also Cape Verdean] coladera with a generous portion of sweeping Cuban rumba, salsa and adventurous jazz. The result: 100% CaboCubaJazz. Both the listener and the dancer are taken on a journey where desire, passion, subtlety and musical fire alternate. Their debut album Rikeza y Valor [2011] has received enthusiastic response worldwide. After a successful release  tour  as a quintet along the Dutch theaters and clubs,  the 2012 tour  includes  performances in Canada and Norway.The band is extended to an octet format on special request.

De Volkskrant wrote : "[...] nice contrasts between sweetness and fire, and between swaying and punching rhythms. [...] A strong  groovy blend of exciting call and response singing, sensual melodies and soothing harmonies, brightened by strong arrangements and improvisations." For the Samui International Jazz Music Festival 2012, CaboCubaJazz feat. Melissa Fortes from Cape Verde and Yerman Aponte from Venezuela
