The Latin Collective

The Latin Collective plays a fast fiery blend of Latin Jazz, Gypsy Swing, Balkan Breaks, Dubstep and Drum and Bass. High energy and expert delivery guaranteed every time! Their music sounds like the soundtrack to the best film you’ve never heard of, an exciting trip through every style – sets veering from twisted bebop trumpet to bass-heavy electronica, via Spaghetti Western soundscapes and afrobeat freak-outs.

Infectious originals sit alongside transformed re-workings of Franz Liszt, Dizzy Gillespie and other legendary musicians in an improbable mash-up of global cultures, influences and sounds. With past performances in Devon, Bath, Sussex, London and Lisbon – and a string of successful festival experiences, The Latin Collective has a wealth of experience, ensuring sensational atmospheres at every occasion!

The Latin Collective are a 5 piece band however they are also available in smaller arrangements:
Jazz Solo Pianist, 3 / 4 piece smaller band performaing Jazz Standards, DJ music between sets and after performance available on request.

"… Fast paced, massively energetic contemporary Latin music, cleverly laced with lashings of jazz, drum and bass and pop influence, a band to watch out for without a doubt."Riggs Reviews, Brighton
