Biography:
 

Born in La Habana, Augusto Enriquez, the leader of the band, is one of the best known modern singers in Cuba.

His career started with the group Moncada. Later, he pursued a career as a solo singer with a record produced by Gianni Miná with the collaboration of Phil Manzanera and Vince Tempera as artistic producers.

His second solo CD, produced by Cuban label EGREM, received the Cubadisco award in 1999. With his last album, Carambola, Augusto enters the fascinating world of the big band orchestra, with the musical support of the Demetrio Muñiz’s experience as music director for the Tropicana Orchestra and the Ibrahim Ferrer Orquesta.

Nowadays, “Carambola” is a CD that deepens in the Cuban music of the 1940s and 1950s, intensely influenced by Jazz Big Bands of the time. The first times that he heard the band, Giorgio Armani had the idea to design stage outfits for the musicians, sponsoring the look of the Mambo Orquesta.
