The Mucho Mambo experience is one of a kind in the music world, a truly authentic and timeless Latin Big Band.
The orchestra’s dynamic sound, arrangements and original look is reminiscent of the golden era of Latin and Jazz genres.
Mucho Mambo’s blend of bold, brassy riffs and driving percussion reinvents Mambo, Big Band Salsa and Cha Cha Cha with a unique funky edge.

"Mucho Mambo are uncanny in the way they recreate the complex but always joyfully danceable sounds of Cuban Big Bands of the 1950s and 1960s. So much work in there...to make so much fun!" Lucky Oceans, Daily Planet, Radio National

"When Mucho Mambo hits its stride, I defy anyone to remain motionless. The band has something for your head and something for your feet.” Music Forum magazine

The music is played with flawless conviction and great panache. This was delightful music in its heyday and sounds like it was invented yesterday when played by Mucho Mambo" Sydney Morning Herald Metro

"This homage to some of the great Cuban artists of the 1950s and '60s captures that unique blend of zest and elegance and is played with panache. Amazingly Mucho Mambo nailed 20 tracks in a day, despite devilish arrangements, complete with charming, remarkably authentic vocals. This is a window on why tiny Cuba has been such a vital force in music across the globe." Sydney Morning Herald 'Shortlist' 2014

“This 16 piece Sydney ensemble has really captured the sound and spirit of Cuban Big Band music of the 1950s and 60s on their new album, which lovingly recreates the arrangements of this very danceable collection of 19 Cuban favourites. Mucho Mambo are uncanny in the way they recreate the complex but always joyfully danceable sounds of Cuban Big Bands of the 1950s and 1960s.  So much work in there...to make so much fun!” Lucky Oceans Radio National
