Tumbao Bravo

Festival favorite Tumbao Bravo is an Ann Arbor Latin jazz combo that brings the rhythms of Cuba to life with congas, timbales, sax, flute, trumpet, keyboard, and bass.
Winner of the 2005, 2007, and 2013 Detroit Music Awards for Best Jazz Recording and Best World Music Band, Tumbao Bravo has performed at all the major Michigan jazz/music festivals and gets regular rotations on jazz stations nationally.
In 2012, famed Cuban percussionist Pepe Espinosa (Afro Cuban All Stars, ¡Cubanismo!) joined the band.
With warm, mellow instrumentals and complex percussion, this is danceable and perfect for a summer night.
