Rumbaché is a word for okra, food of the Afro-Cuban god of the drum, Chango. In the 1950's Rumbaché
became more than just nourishment for the body as Chappottin popularized it in his classic Cuban son. Today, the tasty union of Cuban rhythm and song can be experienced again in Rumbaché, one of the Bay Area's newest salsa bands.

Blending interpretations of the classic Cuban repertoire with fresh originals, Rumbaché is the voice of youth in San Francisco's salsa scene. Under the leadership of percussionist Patricio Angulo and trombonist Eli Sada, the band ignites enthusiasm in dancers and musical connoisseurs alike.

Rumbaché has gradually worked its way into becoming a regular in the Bay Area salsa scene. With a renewed commitment to public performance in 2004, Rumbaché has led a rigorous schedule of performance throughout the Bay Area, including festivals (New Orleans By The Bay, San Jose Jazz Festival) and invited club dance nights (Café Cocomo, Elbo Room, Glas Kat, Jelly's, Maiko Dance Club, Roccapulco).

Rumbaché is Leo Servin (Vocals), Osvaldo Carvajal (Vocals), Leena Luna (Vocals), Carlos Ramirez (Vocals), Sage Baggott (Trap Drums, background vocals), Patricio Angulo (Timbal, background vocals), Colin Douglas (Congas), Bill Thur (Trumpet), Eli Sada (Trombone), Darren Smith (Flute, Tenor & Baritone sax, background vocals), Jason Moen (Piano), and Michael Lazarus (Bass).

Rumbaché is currently available for private parties and public engagements. If you have any questions or comments for the band, or would like to inquire about hiring us, please contact us through one of the options below.
