Live From the Center presents – Tumbao Bravo
Tumbao Bravo is a 5-7 piece Cuban Jazz combo consisting of Congas, Timbales, Sax/Flute/Piccolo, Trumpet/Flugelhorn, Piano, Bass Guitar, and Bongos. Mambos, Cha Chas, Rumbas and Boleros are just some of the authentic rhythms explored by this exciting group. Many of our songs are composed by band members as well as some classic Cuban Jazz tunes. Musically rewarding and quite danceable, our presentation is entertaining and fun. We can perform as the smaller group of five pieces, (without trumpet) for quieter background music; or the full 7 piece group which adds Trumpet and Bongos.
Formed in August of 2003 by conguero Alberto Nacif and reedman Paul VornHagen, Tumbao Bravo won the 2005 Detroit Music Award for “Outstanding Jazz Recording” for their debut release, Montuno Salad. The summer of 2006 saw the release of the second CD, Amigos: From Our Hands which has received huge airplay on the Detroit area airwaves as well as national radio.
