After their sizzling performance at JazzFest 2019, Vancouver-based Mazacote are back!
This JUNO-nominated world/Latin band is a hard-hitting ensemble with deep roots in the music of Colombia, Mozambique and Venezuela. Inspired by Afro-Caribbean percussion and tropical party sounds, they play brass-heavy Latin dance beats with a socially conscious message. Their new politically-charged album Patria on Justin Time/Nettwerk Music draws upon themes of identity, immigration and resistance, reflecting on the plight of those escaping violence and corruption in Latin America and around the world. Mazacote performs across the globe at music festivals and dance clubs, bringing their world dance party vibes to audiences of all ages! Recent highlights include headlining the Vancouver Salsa Festival with New York Latin jazz trombone legend Jimmy Bosch, and mainstage appearances at the Harmony Arts Festival, Carnaval del Sol, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Winterruption Arts Festival and the Global Music Festival.
Members of Mazacote are Daniel Avilan on vocals, Frankie Hidalgo on bass, Juan Encinales on congas, Chris Couto on timbales, Niho Takase on piano and Malcolm Aiken on trumpet.
