The band created for the 2019 edition of the Nancy Jazz Pulsations Festival a big band version "¿Who's The Cuban? Orchestra". With this "Orchestra" version, ¿Who's The Cuban? is switched to XXL version! Eleven brass players and a drummer join the septet to form a new percussive and brass band. The most Cuban of the French music bands presents its latest compositions in an orchestral version for big band. Freshly released in spring, the album Circo Circo is entirely reworked by Youssef Essawabi's jazzifying arrangements. As songs and rhythms sway, we will inevitably remind us of the great mambo ensembles of the mid-20th century and the New York salsa dura of the 70s....
