“Keeping Afro-Cuban inspired music alive! It’s just so gosh-darn fun!”

Malamanya is a United States based band comprised of musicians who share a mutual respect and enthusiasm for traditional rhythms and melodies from Cuba and Latin America. Their style is vintage and their sound is classic.

Their onstage energy and compositions reflect the communal, complex, and celebratory spirit prevalent in these musical genres. Their unique renditions of old, forgotten songs continue to energize diverse audiences.

Malamanya released a new full length album in August 2016.  A vintage Afro-Latin music project, with powerful female vocals and an unstoppable groove, recorded live in the studio using analog tape.
