As soon as you mention the name Papa Mambo, dance floor enthusiasts react with excitement. Celebrating its 20th anniversary on July 30, Papa Mambo has spent years providing high-caliber music and performances on stage, radio, TV, and on CD across Canada.
This weekend, tune in for a concert they played at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, filled with their signature blend of jazz and Latin music, getting Winnipeggers out of their seats and onto the dance floors.
A Latin jazz ensemble made up of 11 of some of Winnipeg’s most sought-after musicians, the group is led by the charismatic Rodrigo Muñoz. Their diverse array of jazz-inflected Latin rhythms and progressive musical ideas promises a performance full of hot solos, driving ensemble work, and tempo-shifting dance floor madness. So tune in!
