Cacao Música recording artists and winners of the 2006 Phoenix Best Music Poll “Best World Music Act,” Obbini Tumbao delivers a double shot of high-energy music that makes audiences want to get up and dance!
Rebecca Cline, pianist from Athens, GA, joins forces with Anita Quinto, percussionist from Caracas, Venezuela, to produce a compelling new sound for fans looking for more of that infectious groove associated with acts like Cuba’s Buena Vista Social Club.
The band’s powerful horn section, made up of trumpets and trombones, is supported by an ebullient rhythm section of congas, timbales, bongos, piano and bass. Fronted by the area’s most in-demand lead vocalists and the two dynamic co-leaders, Obbini Tumbao leaves audiences feeling enthralled and hungry for more.
In five short years, Obbini Tumbao has gained the loyal affection of the Boston-area dancing and Latin-music-loving public. They perform regularly to sold-out audiences at venues such as the Blue Note’s Regattabar, Scullers Jazz Club, and Ryles Jazz Club.
Obbini Tumbao has been nominated for Best World Music Act in the Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll 2009. Click here to vote today!
"One of the hottest Latin jazz outfits on the Boston Scene." -- Bob Young, Boston Herald
"If Mambo Kings Poncho Sanchez and Tito Puente got together to jam with Herb Alpert and Ry Cooder of the Buena Vista Social Club, it might sound something like Obbini Tumbao." -- Liza Weisstuch, Boston Globe
