Mambo Jambo – 20th May

Acoustic roots duo, Mambo Jambo, will be taking you on an intriguing and joyous musical journey mixing elements and sounds from world, folk and jazz on the 20th May. Featuring music from New Orleans, Cuba, Brazil and Eastern Europe, as well as cajun, bluegrass, boogie, and their own compositions. Between the two of them they carry with them more instruments than the average orchestra – Pete on guitar, vocal, banjo, percussion, tres (traditional Cuban guitar), ukulele, accordion, suitcase and Frankie on saxophone, clarinet, flute, guitar, vocal, and percussion.

Mambo Jambo have firmly established themselves as one of the country’s finest live acts, the pair play a bewildering array of acoustic instruments – all played with flair and enthusiasm. To describe their music as ‘feel-good’ is an understatement – I guarantee it will give everyone a lift after the winter blues”Martin Peirson, Processed Pea Folk Club

‘Mambo Jambo are quite simply two of the most talented and entertaining musicians around. Their welcome return visits to the Hunsley Acoustic Music sessions are always a sell-out way in advance of their concerts which is a tribute to them as artists! The audience never cease to be enthralled and captivated by their versatility and their warm, entertaining delivery and exceptional talent. Once seen…never forgotten!!!’Will Richardson, Hunsley Acoustic Music

“Mambo Jambo- Wonderful sound”Gareth Evans, BBC Radio Sheffield
