An Old Havana feel mixed with Rumba Flamenco.
Fusing the rhythms of Latin America and Spanish Flamenco, Zach Preston brings a new perspective on modern Spanish guitar. With intricate melodies and a tradition of honed technique originating from hundreds of years of Spain’s Mediterranean heritage, Zach connects Latin America with Spain; countries that reside an ocean apart, but share a common musical harmony.
Canadian born, Zach was soon to leave his comfort zone with the goal of learning more of Spanish and Latin American music and culture so as to better create a current and modern portrayal of what this music is, and its potential. After living in Spain, Zach ventured into Latin America where he absorbed the rhythms of Puerto Rico, Cuba, Colombia and Mexico to mesh them into a style reminiscent of Hispanic America’s and Spain’s fiery heritage.
“Estilo Cohiba” is the name Zach gave to his band that backs him up. It consists of seasoned percussionists from Cuba and Colombia as well as Bass guitar and Alto Saxophone.
Zach Preston fronts his group Estilo Cohiba, a high energy 6 piece Latin Spanish Fusion Band featuring seasoned percussionists from Cuba and Colombia. With Zach on guitar leading the show they play a variety of instrumental and vocal music from Latin America and the Mediterranean.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
