Mazacote is a hard-hitting six-piece world/latin band from Vancouver, BC with deep roots in Nicaragua, Mozambique and Colombia. Inspired by Afro-Caribbean percussion and tropical party sounds, they play brass-heavy latin dance beats with a socially conscious message.
Performing together since 2009, Mazacote features the captivating voice of Nicaraguan singer/songwriter David Lopez and a groove-heavy rhythm section with Carlos Arias on bass, Chris Couto on timbales, Robin Layne on congas, Niho Takase on piano and Malcolm Aiken on trumpet.
