Mongorama was formed in 2010 in honor of the 1960's music of legendary conguero, Mongo Santamaria. We integrated Jazz with elements of Cuban Charanga rhythms, creating unique harmonic voices using violin, flute and tenor saxophone, supported by an impressive percussion section. Mongorama is an exciting experience to not just listen to, with our amazing world-class musicians, but to dance-to as well. The great Los Angeles latin music dancers follow our performances. Our first CD self-titled "Mongorama" received a Grammy Nomination in 2011. Our 3rd CD "Mariposas Cantan" will be released this September 18 and also available on Amazon.
