Orquesta Akokán
Daptone Records | Cuba
Australian Exclusive
This big band mambo collective comprised of Cuba’s finest musicians brings the party direct from its source, celebrating Havana of the 1940s and 50s: a vibrant epicentre of music and culture.

Signed to Daptone Records and pieced together by celebrated Cuban singer José 'Pepito' Gómez, arranger and piano player Michael Eckroth, and producer and tres player Jacob Plasse, Orquesta Akokán has a crack brass section, a blazing live show and a mission to do for original 40s mambo what Buena Vista Social Club did for son cubano music.

Orquesta Akokán’s self-titled debut, released this year, was recorded live in Havana’s most famous recording studio, chanelling the spirit of every great Cuban musician to have recorded there since the 40s.
