Q Theatre

Charanga Amadeus is a mini Orquesta Tipica Cubana, otherwise known as a Cuban charanga band. It's from this style of music that the great Cuban rhythms and dances, the mambo and the cha cha cha evolved.

The roots stretch back to African tribal music and to the French and Spanish classical and folk traditions. Charanga Amadeus strictly interprets the passionate melodies and rhythms of this music, much of which is improvised, so that it is always fresh, exciting and new while authentically expressing the 1940s and 50s Havana style.

Hershal Herscher, band leader and arranger, played piano with New York versions of charanga, notable "Orquesta Broadway" and "Charanga 76" during the 60s and 70s and is a recipient of the prestigious Tony Rodriguez Award (for services to Latin music in New York).

Part of the 2015 Auckland Jazz Festival.
