Rumbankete reigns supreme in the greater Los Angeles area salsa scene. This 14-piece line-up is putting contemporary Cuban dance music (timba) on the map.

Front line singers Gonzálo "Chalo" Chomat (ex Conexión Salsera) and Iris Sandra Cepeda (ex Arte Mixto) both consummate musicians from Cuba who have made LA their home.

An evolution of salsa, timba takes it up a notch, with hyper-syncopated rhythms, fiery violins and blazing brass. Rumbankete packs LA area clubs such as the Mayan and the Conga Room, here’s a chance to hear them in the Southbay.

"If I was forced to categorize it, I'd call it modern folk. It's powerful. It's romantic. It's giddy. And the two are insanely infectious together onstage, like a musical and a personal love fest all at once." - Huffington Post

With more than a dozen albums and over a thousand shows between them, Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth of MOUTHS OF BABES are no strangers to the contemporary folk music scene. For years, their respective bands Girlyman and Coyote Grace captivated thousands of loyal fans as they criss-crossed the country, rocked festival main stages, and toured with the likes of the Indigo Girls and Dar Williams.

Now, as Mouths of Babes, Ty and Ingrid have distilled the songwriting, humor, and musicianship of their previous groups into a new power duo that brings more style and depth than ever before.
