MAZACOTE is a west coast latin dance band, playing horn-driven New York salsa dura and beats from Colombia, Puerto Rico and Cuba.

Based in Vancouver, the band features Nicaraguan singer-songwriter David Lopez, latin jazz trumpeter Malcolm Aiken and a groove-heavy rhythm section featuring Chris Couto on timbales, Aaron McKinney on bass, and Niho Takase on keys.

Mazacote performs across the west coast at festivals and dance clubs, bringing the exciting latin dance party vibe to audiences of all ages! Highlights include headlining the Vancouver International Salsa Festival with New York latin jazz trombone legend Jimmy Bosch, as well as mainstage appearances at the Harmony Arts Festival, the Carnaval del Sol, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Winterruption Arts and Culture Festival and Kelowna's Global Music Festival.

In 2012, Mazacote released their debut EP Salsa Dura (TrebleFive Records). Featuring powerful vocals combined with driving afrocuban percussion and brassy mambos, the album comes out swinging hard, introducing their son-inspired take on some of salsa’s hardest grooves.

Mazacote is set to release their second album of original music "Nueva Era" in spring 2015.
