Pepito Gomez and his Havana Latin Ensemble have earned 2 rave reviews from the NY Times since January 2009. Gomez has the most beautiful voice to come out of Cuba in the last 50 years with a timbre very rarely found. He was internationally famous in Cuba for over 15 years singing traditional, jazz and then Cuban Salsa with the number 1 band in the country. He has been here in the United States less than a year and has already performed to amazing reviews from the press, fans and is highly respected by fellow musicians.
He is available to play Latin music-Salsa with a band of up to 13 members including violin and a flute or can be hired to play Cuban classics with a trio, quartet or quintet. We are available to travel anywhere and will entertain any song requests. Our musicians are mostly trained in Havana's best musical conservatories in all types of Latin music and classical pieces. Our piano player is a double conservatory trained female singer as well and has her own beautiful pieces that she performs within the band. They have performed at the finest theaters and venues in the world and can make your event the most special night you've ever experienced.
