Our new salsa band “Grupo Tumbao” did its first public performance on Saturday February 1st. The venue Cafe Sanaa was filled to the rim by an enthusiastic audience. Our 2 sets consisted of standard dance tunes such as Chanchullo and La Musica Cubana, both recorded by Ibrahim Ferrer. A section of the music of Irakere included Claudia, Boliviana and Mambo Influenciado. Late additions to the repertoire included Mambo Mongo and Mayeya by Mongo Santamaria.

The band line up on saturday was:

Norge Sanchez (lead vocals, percussion)
Jose Gonzales (vocal, percussion)
Esau Pinto (bass)
Øystein Kvinge (piano)
Bjørn Blomberg (sax)
Bård Ø. Hugaas (trombone)
