A band of only five musicians, Los Hacheros can sound like a conjunto of 12. Eddie Venegas (Marc Anthony, Orchestra Broadway), who plays violin and sings chorus, improvises mambos on the trombone; Itai Kriss (Edmar Castaneda, Grupo Latin Vibe) sings, plays flute, campana, and güiro, while Papote Jimenez is in charge of lead vocals, soulful soneos (improvised verses) and congas. William Ash (Alfredo de la Fe, Brenda K Starr) holds down the tumbaos on baby bass while Jacob Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba.
