When we already believed that Cuba had nothing more to offer, Orquesta Akokán came like a bolt from the blue, a band of deeply soulful mambo reminiscent of Cuban legends Benny Moré, Pérez Prado, and banda gigante of the 1940s and 50s. Straight out of Havana, with Cuba's finest players, young and old, led by the inimitable and dynamic singer José "Pepito" Gómez. The ferocious and pedigreed wind and rhythm sections consist of musicians from storied groups including Irakere, NG La Banda, and Los Van Van. An ensemble that will have the audience on their feet from the very first song.



Koncert je bil prvotno napovedan za 28. maj 2021, prestavljen za eno leto, na 28. maj 2022. O morebitni menjavi kupljenih vstopnic bomo kupce obveščali najpozneje mesec dni pred koncertom.
