esperados is a collective of creative jazz musicians interested in fusing big melodies with world rhythms and textures, intricate arrangements and expressive improvisation. Influenced by the likes of Nana Vasconcelas, Tito Puente, Ibrahim Maalouf and the Buena Vista Social Club, Vesperados mix warm, evocative ballads with firey, percussive beats- just the thing to light up a winter’s evening. Past highlights include several popular visits to Hot Numbers, playing at the Cambridge Modern Jazz Club and recording at the London School of Sound in Clapham. In 2016 Vesperados will make their London debut at the Jackdaw Jazz Club in East London.
