Mazacote is a hard-hitting six-piece world/Latin band with deep roots in Nicaragua, Mozambique, and Colombia. Inspired by Afro-Caribbean percussion and tropical party sounds, the group plays brass-heavy Latin dance beats with a socially conscious message. Performing together since 2009, Mazacote features the captivating voice of Nicaraguan singer/songwriter David Lopez and a groove-heavy rhythm section with Carlos Arias on bass, Chris Couto on timbales, Robin Layne on congas, Japanese pianist Niho Takase, and trumpeter Jeremy Vint. Mazacote's new album Nueva Era on TrebleFive Records was recently nominated as World Album of the Year at the 2016 WCM Awards.
