Coconut Cake plays rumba music - inspired by post-war radio broadcasts of imported son cubano recordings, and rearranged and performed by legendary Congolese musicians in the 50s and 60s.
Led by guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Michael Libramento, this Asheville, NC based ensemble pays enthusiastic tribute to Congo’s great dance bands and pioneers of African rumba: Franco & OK Jazz, Rock-A-Mambo, Grand Kallé, Bantous de la Capitale, Tabu Ley, and more.
