Rodrigo “Papa Mambo” Muñoz is “Winnipeg’s undisputed salsa king” (Jen Zoratti, Winnipeg Free Press). The Chilean-born bandleader started Papa Mambo as a spirited party band. 25 years later, it counts amoung its highlights backing international superstar Tito Puente and selling out Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra shows. The band’s jazz-inflected Latin rhythms, plus a “generous helping of energy and panache” (Gwenda Menerofsky, Winnipeg Free Press), are featured on the Western Canadian Music Award nominated album “El Swing de Papa Mambo.” Under the charismatic leadership of Rodrigo Muñoz, the big sound of this “venerated collective … has become a fixture of the Winnipeg music scene,” (Jen Zoratti, Winnipeg Free Press), delighting audiences with music that’s fun, lively, and invites you to mambo all night long.
