The Ileana Santamaria Orchestra delivers a powerful and versatile live music experience. At the helm is vocalist, songwriter, and dancer Ileana Santamaria, who has already made her mark as frontwoman and bandleader, taking her 6-piece ensemble to venues that span the main stages of Jazz festivals throughout the United States and also highly prestigious New York City venues such as Dizzy's Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, where the Orchestra, led by Ileana's inimitably charismatic and engaging stage presence and powerful, lilting voice, packed the house on a Monday night and got people up on their feet and grooving at a traditionally sit-down club.

Ileana follows in the tradition of her father, the legendary percussionist, composer, bandleader, and Latin Jazz pioneer, Mongo Santamaria, whose version of Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man was one of the first Jazz compositions to blaze to the top of the pop charts in the 1960s. As composer and performer, Ileana integrates the various musical influences that marked her father's career, all the while bringing to her delivery of original and traditional material a very contemporary and accessible spin.

The Ileana Santamaria Orchestra has proven its ability to rouse audiences and deliver a wide variety of material, from the very dynamic and dance-oriented Latin and Caribbean genres to the gentle and rich harmonies of Brazilian Jazz and Bossa Nova, and in pitch- and pronunciation-perfect Portuguese to boot (Ileana is also fluent in six languages, by the way!). Be it a wedding, a company party, or any other event, this top-flight crew of acclaimed musicians - among them sidemen of Grammy nominees! - has the experience to add the perfect musical touch to your event and make it an occasion to remember.
