Y La Orkesta @ The Rialto

Sep 26 2009 7:00 pm

Indie-Mambo is a great characterization for the twelve plus members band Y La Orkesta. Originally from Tucson, Arizona Y La Orkesta’s members are primarily from two local bands The Jons and Seven to Blue. Y La Orkesta slam dunk the resurrection of Perez Prado’s sound, Sergio’s greatest influence that fearlessly created Mambo by combining traditional Cuban rhythms with the swing of American Jazz, and Big Band harmonic sophistications. Unlike revival Mambo from the 1990’s, Y La Orkesta maintains their influence from 1940’s and 1950’s Jazz by utilizing tight percussion and high register trumpets. Deftly, Sergio Mendoza masters the fevered complexities of Mambo to infuse it with the jangly funkiness of modern rock.
