“Expect hardcore salsa, exploding drums and outrageously funky boogaloo” Time Out

The Mantecas (formerly known as “Manteca”) is an eight piece, London-based, Latin Soul and Boogaloo band well known for creating a party mood at festivals and gigs everywhere they go, from Glastonbury, Ealing Festival and Tropical Pressure Festival to The 606 Club and The Jazz Café in London. They have a particular ability for bridging the culture gap with any audience getting all crowds up hitting the dance floor in a jive. The mantecas will blow your mind with a mesmerising mix of salsa, cumbia, funk, jazz and boogaloo.
