61st GRAMMY Awards Nomination

Orquesta Akokán is nominated in the 2019 Grammys for the Best Tropical Latin Album! This is an amazing band and I’m thrilled to be a part of this musical celebration. Recorded at the legendary Areito studio in Havana, the brainchild of singer Jose “Pepito” Gomez, producer and trés player Jacob Plasse and composer-arranger-pianist Michael Eckroth features some of Cuba’s best musicians. This is a band that swings hard and brings back the glory of Mambo with a refreshing sound and all original compositions.
