Trio Bembe plays infectious Latin music from around the world. Having chased their passion from the snowy Canadian prairies to Cuba, Brazil, and Chile, this trio is overflowing with rhythmic energy. Their album “Oh my soul” won a 2014 Global Music Award and a 2011 “World Recording of the Year” Award by the Western Canadian Music Awards.

Trio Bembe is absolutely contagious – fabulous music that, in spite of yourself, makes you dance like no one is watching! – Heather Bishop

Rodrigo Muñoz, native to Chile and leader of the well-loved 11-piece salsa band, Papa Mambo, brings his 25 years of energetic music-making to the forefront of the Canadian Latin Jazz scene with his new group Trio Bembe.  Muñoz has performed at the Vancouver Jazz Festival, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and the Montreal Jazz Fest. Trio Bembe’s upbeat, rhythmic grooves are supported by percussionist Scott Senior (The Duhks, Rankin Sisters) and vocalist Amber Epp (Steve Kirby, Papa Mambo).
