The Mañana Collective love to add Latin American flavour to the mix, creating their own arrangements of incredible tunes from Africa, Cuba, Brazil and beyond! Recent performances: CafeJazz Cardiff, Taliesen Arts Centre- Swansea University, Walthamstow Street Festival July 2014 and St James’s Piccadilly 2014 featuring former member of the Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra and Afro Cuban All Stars, Javier Zalba.
