A virtual United Nations of women, the members of Cocomama hail from five countries on four continents. Playing their own kind of World Latin music, powerfully virtuosic yet elegantly musical, Cocomama “brings it” creating a sound that is all at once fierce and beautiful!
The group’s influences are limitless: Afro-Cuban, Classical, Jazz, Afro-Caribbean, Latin American, Soul, R&B and beyond.
Cocomama’s origins date back to 2005 when world-renowned flautist Andrea Brachfeld was asked to form an all-female salsa band to play a fundraiser at the Copacabana for then New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The success of this chance performance led to other engagements and from these early gigs, Cocomama was born.
