“Simply one of the most exceptional Latin music projects in recent memory. An invigorating, dynamic group…. a vibrant celebration, potent and passionate music.” – WholeNote 

Juno-nominated Mazacote is a hard-hitting, six-piece world/Latin band with deep roots in the music of Nicaragua, Mozambique, and Colombia. Inspired by Afro-Caribbean percussion and tropical party sounds, they play brass-heavy Latin dance beats with a socially conscious message. Mazacote features powerful vocals combined with driving AfroCuban percussion and brassy mambos. They come out swinging hard, introducing their own take on some of salsa’s hardest grooves. Mazacote IS a Latin dance party!

Their new politically charged album PATRIA, on Justin Time/Nettwerk Music, draws upon themes of identity, immigration, and resistance, reflecting on the plight of those escaping violence and corruption in Latin America and around the world.
