Pay What You Feel on the gate.
Led by Cuban flautist Jose Zalba-Smith, The Mañana Collective is a powerhouse of latin rhythm, playing Cuban and Brazilian music together explosively. A volatile, love-loaded party bag around every corner, full of beans. An unstoppable expression of joy!
The band came about when Jose met some really talented musicians at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. They bonded over their shared love of latin rhythm and the rest, as they say, is history!
Recent performances include CafeJazz Cardiff, Taliesen Arts Centre at Swansea University, Walthamstow Street Festival and St James’s Church Piccadilly, featuring former member of the Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra and Afro Cuban All Stars, Javier Zalba.
