Rootmaster presents THE MAÑANA COLLECTIVE – led by Cuban flautist Jose Zalba-Smith, The Mañana Collective is a powerhouse of Latin rhythm, playing Cuban and Brazilian music together explosively. A volatile, love-loaded party bag around every corner, full of beans. An unstoppable expression of joy!

The band came about when Jose met some talented jazz musicians at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. They bonded over their shared love of Latin rhythm and the rest, as they say, is history! 

Recent performances include CafeJazz Cardiff, Taliesen Arts Centre-Swansea University, Walthamstow Street Festival July 2014/2015, Galeri Caernarfon, North Wales and St James’s Church Piccadilly, London featuring former member of the Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra and Afro Cuban All Stars: Javier Zalba.

The members: Flautist Jose Zalba-Smith, Pianist James Clark, Bassist Pete Komor, Drummer Rod Oughton will always bring a concert of moving multi-continental musical mayhem. 

Let the band transport you to a Latin-American heaven, whatever the weather!
