Orlando Ortiz and Karibe Mambo Orchestra is a 10-piece Latin band that has set on fire the tri-state area (NY, CT, NJ) with a unique sound. Although they’ve been together since 2005, OO & KMO is an ensamble of seasoned musicians who’ve played in some of the best orchestras in the Northeast region and Puerto Rico. On stage they project a powerful and energetic sound, specializing in Caribbean music — Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Son Montuno. When you hear and see them perform, you will find it difficult to keep still, since they are first and foremost a dance band.

OO & KMO is led by Puerto Rican born lead singer Orlando Ortiz, a seasoned professional that started his musical career more than a decade ago in Texas. “There’s nothing more fulfilling as a performer than to watch an audience fully enjoying our performances without holding back,” says Ortiz. “It is especially gratifying to observe those of various ethnic backgrounds, who may or may not fully know or understand the history of the Hispanic musical culture, enjoy our music.”
