Machimbombo fuse west African rhythms with modern jazz sensibilities delivering new music from Pedro Velasco intertwining grooves, east and south African infused harmony, and playful improvisation.

Pedro Velasco - Guitar
Dan Mays - Tenor Saxophone
Geoff Threadgold - Bass
Adam Osmianski - Drums

Machimbombo’s material stems from original sketches from Velasco, drawing on family connections with Mozambique, Portuguese roots, and the musical meditative-style of Frisell. These sketches are animated through dynamic group arrangements, making for works that give voice both to the ensemeble and it's individual.
