Obbini Tumbao

Due to weather, this event has been moved to the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts at 85 West Newton Street, Boston, MA.

Cacao Música recording artists and winners of the 2006 Boston Phoenix poll for Best World Music Act, Obbini Tumbao delivers a double shot of high-energy music that makes audiences want to get up and dance.

Rebecca Cline, a pianist from Athens, Georgia, joins forces with Anita Quinto, a percussionist from Caracas, Venezuela, to produce a compelling new sound for fans looking for more of that infectious groove associated with acts like the Buena Vista Social Club. The band's powerful horn section, made up of trumpets and trombones, is supported by an ebullient rhythm section of congas, timbales, bongos, piano, and bass.

Fronted by the area's most in-demand lead vocalists and the two dynamic co-leaders, Obbini Tumbao leaves audiences feeling enthralled and hungry for more. In five short years, Obbini Tumbao has gained the loyal affection of the Boston-area dancing and salsa-music-loving public. It performs regularly to sold-out audiences at venues such as the Blue Note's Regattabar, Scullers Jazz Club, and Ryles Jazz Club.
