Rebel Tumbao (pronounced Toom-Ba-ou )
This incendiary 12 piece band led by Matt Jenson (keys) and José Claussell (multi-percussionist, Eddie Palmieri/Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell) have developed a new sound that is a unique blend of contemporary Cuban Son and Jamaican Roots Reggae with elements of soul, gospel, funk, jazz and African folklore. AfroLatinRootsReggae
They have a message to bring that is a delicious brew of socially conscious lyrics with sharp political commentary, held together with amazingly tight rhythm and horn arrangements bubbling under and over the most wrenching vocals in English and Spanish. Put your feet on automatic 'cause your mind will be working over time!
