TANGA is a west coast latin electro funk collective dedicated to cross-cultural collaboration and discovering new sounds and grooves.

Formed in 2005 by a collective of young emerging musicians and producers, they cut their teeth playing in salsa bands and experimenting with latin jazz and pop music. With a love for the latin big band sounds of Tito Puente, Machito and Mario Bauza, their first album Simmer & Serve (2007) featured classic latin dance grooves, swinging mambos and driving percussion.

Havanaelectro is their second full-length album, released on Vancouver indie label TrebleFive Records. Recorded in Havana and Vancouver, at its heart it is a travelling audio documentary between two cities, featuring a blend of beats – latin, electronic, hip hop and jazz – underpinned by a distinctly Afro-Cuban pulse. Producer and trumpeter Malcolm Aiken describes the album as “a bold new approach to a classic sound, with an edgy, modern and distinctly cool, sometimes almost trance-like vibe”.

The new album features collaborations with a cast of international musicians, including Grammy Award-winning Jimmy Bosch on trombone (New York), vocalists Jesus El Nino (Montreal), Silvana Kane (Pacifika) and David Lopez (Mazacote), rapper Kyprios (Vancouver), beat poet C.R. Avery (Vancouver) and members of Cuban sextet Tanta de los Guaracheros (Havana).
