Latin dance band Mazacote to play Quadra Community Centre

Vancouver band features Nicaraguan singer-songwriter David Lopez, Latin jazz trumpeter Malcolm Aiken and a groove-heavy rhythm section

Hard-hitting six-piece afro-latin-dance band, Mazacote, is bringing their horn-driven, New York salsa dura and beats from Columbia, Puerto Rico and Cuba to Quadra this Saturday (Nov. 26).

Based in Vancouver, the band features Nicaraguan singer-songwriter David Lopez, Latin jazz trumpeter Malcolm Aiken and a groove-heavy rhythm section featuring Chris Couto on timbales, Carlos Arias on bass, and Niho Takase on keys, and was nominated for a 2016 Western Canadian Music Award for World Artist of the Year.

Mazacote performs across the west coast at festivals, dance clubs and special events, bringing the exciting Latin dance party vibe to audiences of all ages, earning high praise for their energy and enthusiastic music that gets people moving.

Ryan Donn, director of the Global Music Festival in Kelowna, says, Mazacote “sure knows how to get a crowd moving. They filled Kelowna’s streets with Latin rhythms and got the whole community dancing.”

If this sounds like something you need in your life, get your tickets for Saturday’s performance at Works of H’Art in Heriot Bay or Inspirations in Quathiaski Cove or purchase them online through Tidemark Theatre for $17 in advance. Tickets will also be available at the door for $20.

The show starts at 7:30.
