CaboCubaJazz is the brainchild of one of Europe's top percussionists, Nils Fischer (The Netherlands) and master pianist Carlos Matos (Cape Verde). Their ensemble blends the joyful dances and melancholy of the Cape Verdean Islands with a generous portion of sweeping Cuban rumba & salsa topped by some adventurous jazz. When creole cultures meet, the result is wonderful, heartwarming music and a Latin dance party at the same time, seasoned with super tight rhythm and inimitable virtuosity. CaboCubaJazz’s 2011 debut album “Rikeza y Valor” garnered rave reviews worldwide. The band’s 2017 follow-up album, “Corason Africano,” features beautiful originals and contributions by legendary Cape Verdean composers, performed CaboCubaJazz - style!
