      On this, their third album, they combine talents with Cuban lyricist, singer and composer Kiko Ruiz, who has toured and recorded with Pancho Amatʼs illustrious Estrellas del Buena Vista Social Club as well as having a longstanding history as a singer, composer and arranger with Orquesta Maria Alejandra y Cubanía.

      Caracoles ushers (GRAMMY-award nominated) Orquesta Akokánʼs unique brand of mambo into the 21st century, imbuing it with the groupʼs signature sense of akokán–a Cuban Yoruba word meaning “from the heart”.

      Back at the helm are producer and mul] instrumentalist, Jacob Plasse and virtuosic
      pianist, composer and arranger Michael Eckroth - a collabora]on that con]nues to
      lead Orquestaʼs explora]on of the sublime mambo in all its depth and breadth.
