Pablo Batista's Mambo Syndicate
is a 10-piece rhythm juggernaut that throws down classic salsa dura, and conjurs up the glory days of massive Saturday night/Sunday afternoon Latin dance parties at New York’s famed Palladium Ballroom. The Mambo Syndicate also formed the nucleus for the Philadelphia Clef Club’s mid-2000s re-creation of the famed “Salsa Meets Jazz” series in the 1970s and ’80s at New York’s Village Gate.
Mambo, rumba, son, guaracha, cha-cha-cha and boleros — the Mambo Syndicate playlist celebrates and pays homage to legendary Latin bandleaders Machito, Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, Perez Prado, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto and more.
