Mambo Jambo – Acoustic Roots

Saturday 19th May 2018

This friendly and talented Acoustic Roots duo will take you on an exciting and joyous musical journey, bringing together sounds from world, roots, folk and jazz, plus their own compositions. They can happily transport listeners on a musical tour around many of the world’s musical hotspots with a repertoire that draws in a wide range of styles that might include Bluegrass, Latin & Caribbean New Orleans, Balkan and more.

Blending all these influences, they create an upbeat rhythmic and rootsy sound all of their own – uniquely diverse as well as hugely enjoyable. Frankie plays sax, vocals, clarinet, flute, guitar and percussion and Pete’s on guitar, vocal, banjo, ukulele, tres (traditional Cuban guitar) accordion and suitcase.

To describe their music as ‘feel-good’ is an understatement – it’s the sort of music that will send you home with a smile on your face and a spring in your step at the end of the night!

“Musical sunshine from a multi-talented and multi-instrumental duo. If they cannot put a smile on your face and set your feet tapping you may be beyond therapy.” Junction Inn, Leeds Gig Guide
