MIXCLA

Pulling from the three dynamic spirits of the Zahili Gonzalez Zamora Project, a new mixture of sonic masterpieces is born. MIXCLA is a play on words between mezcla and mix. It is also a merging of cultures hailing from the mountains of Chile to the traditions of Japan and driven by the fires of Cuba to achieve a truly unique Latin jazz experience. MIXCLA is led by composer, pianist, and singer Zahili Gonzalez Zamora with Gerson Esteban Lazo Quiroga on bass and backing vocals and Takafumi Nikaido on percussion. This mixture of cultural spices makes the perfect recipe for a one-of-a-kind musical experience.
