Grupo Fantasma


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

Grupo Fantasma image

From Austin, Texas, this is a Latino band whose “incendiary” live shows knock everyone out, from the dancefloor to the Wall Street Journal: “Latin music both new and traditional…vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification.” Their genre bending sound is hip and current yet deeply rooted in the mambo, merengue and cumbia that sends salsa dancers spinning, with a rock/funk punchy deep groove.  Fiery, intricate horns, percolating percussion and biting guitars create extraordinary gigs– no wonder that Prince chose them as a backing band.
