Lleg la Fiesta
Rumbaché has established themselves as one of the hottest Bay Area salsa bands. Fusing salsa, timba, bomba and whatever else they could find to spicen up the mood, they provide a hard hitting style of playing. And while you can hear them interpreting the classic and contemporary Cuban and Salsa repertoire, they are not shy with their own expression. Their fresh originals make them stand-out in an otherwise cover heavy salsa scene. Under the leadership of percussionist Patricio Angulo, Rumbaché is the voice of youth for San Francisco's salsa scene, and ignites enthusiasm in dancers and musical connoisseurs alike. With a renewed commitment to public performance in 2011, Rumbaché has led a rigorous schedule of performance throughout the Bay Area, including festivals (Benbow Summer Arts & Music Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Sonoma Jazz Festival) and club dates (Kelly's, Sausalito Seahorse, The Blue Macaw, El Rio, La Peña Cultural Center, Shattuck Down-Low Lounge and The Cigar Bar & Grill). Rumbaché features Omar Ledezma (Vocals), Monica Fimbrez (Vocals), Patricio Angulo (Congas, Musical Director), Colin Douglas (Traps with Timbal), Ed Morrison (Trumpet), Darren Smith (Baritone Sax, Coro), Evan Francis (Tenor Sax, Coro), Jason Moen (Piano), and Sam Bevan (bass).
