A virtual United Nations of women, the members of Cocomama hail from five countries on four continents. Playing their own kind of World Latin music, powerfully virtuosic yet elegantly musical, Cocomama “brings it” creating a sound that is all at once fierce and beautiful! Among the members of Cocomama, congera Mayra Casales tours with The Ojays, vocalist Ariacne Trujillo is up for a Grammy Award, and bassist Jennifer Vincent appeared with the Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars in the hit Broadway musical revue After Midnight. We invite you to come and let Cocomama take you on a musical Latin adventure around the world!!!
“If you crave music that is uninterruptedly arresting as well as music that is profoundly moving then you would do well to gravitate towards Cocomama…I cannot think of anyone or any group that could make such explosive music, so seductively – song after song, after song.” – Raul Da Gama, LatinJazzNet.com
“Take an incredible musical journey with Cocomama, an all-female band appropriately named for the Incan goddess of health and happiness. Brimming with originality, authenticity and swing, this diverse group of virtuosic musicians dazzle…”- Vicki Sola, Latin Beat Magazine
