Originally from Tucson, Arizona Y La Orkesta maintains their influence from 1940’s and 1950’s Jazz by utilizing tight percussion and high register trumpets. Arranger Sergio Mendoza has blended the fevered complexities of Mambo with the funkiness of modern rock. The result is a thick, luscious arrangements that are killer on the dance floor because of their fire-cracking crisp beats. Each of the twelve musicians bestows profuse professionalism and craft to Y La Orkesta merging their individual backgrounds and influences seamlessly.
