BIO

Alberta’s most caliente Latin-Jazz Ensemble, Montuno West, is comprised of former members from Alberta’s Latin musical stalwarts, Bomba and Cumako. Strongly influenced by Cuban and other Latin styles, the ensemble's vibrant and adventurous instrumental compositions bring a distinctly modern quality to the rich and rhythmic sounds of Latin-influenced Jazz. Together, the group performs everything from Son, Songo, Rumba, Timba, Cha Cha and Danzon to Joropo, Bossa Nova and Samba.

Montuno West’s inaugural CD release, Tocar Tambor, features NYC-based, Grammy Award-winning jazz trombonist of Costa Rican descent, Luis Bonilla (Village Vanguard Orchestra, Phil Collins)
