The magnetic charm of Eliel Lazo's Cuban Quintet, featuring the powerhouse Cuban drumming legend, Calixto Oviedo. Eliel Lazo, the maestro of vibrant rhythms and evocative melodies, mesmerised the crowd with a constellation of musical virtuosos.

The lineup boasted the drumming dynamo Calixto Oviedo, a key player in shaping the last 30 years of Cuban Music with styles like Cuban Timba and Modern Cuban Jazz. Joining him are two Danish prodigies – the versatile guitarist and songwriter Zacharias W. Celinder, and the maestro of keys, Mark Chemnizt, a force in the Danish Pop and Jazz scene. Mark's collaborations with heavyweights like Benjamin Koppel and Rasmus Seebach speak volumes. Zacharias' dynamic guitar riffs and Mark's lush arrangements promise to elevate the vibe. The rhythmic foundation will be handled by Cuban bass virtuoso Yasser Pino, founder of The Latin Syndicate, ensuring an irresistible rhythmic foundation.
