Chico Con Tumbao – Latin Duo


Latin Duo also known as Chico and Edwin: Chico Zarate & Edwin Westermeier. They originate from Colombia and Chile. Hence they authentically perform an array of styles. From Latin folklore to music from The Gypsy Kings, Jobin, Santana and Buena Vista Social Club. Buena Vista Social Club is a movie that showcased Cuban music to the wider world. It was brought forth by Ry Cooder.
Latin covers a wide range of music: the romantic bolero, the sensual bossa nova, the catchier cha cha cha, la rumba, the seductive el tango, la salsa and playful merenge, you will hear them all. After years of performing in Latin bands in Europe, Dubai, Colombia, Brazil and Aotearoa, they have joined forces to delight you.
With an extensive repertoire your live Latin music experience will be superlative. Latin dancers and larger Latin line-ups are also hire-able through this agency.
