Manteca has been a pan cultural mash up since it started in Toronto in 1979. Drawing on musical influences throughout the Americas, this nine member artists’ collective, founded by percussionist Matt Zimbel has been an international innovator at creating original music composed and arranged using the bones of world, jazz, and orchestral music.
The Toronto Star wrote about the group recently and called their work “gut grabbing innovation.” Laurie Brown, of CBC described a Manteca recent recording as having, “cinematic, introspective, moody and mysterious...the playing is exceptional, the sound remarkable.”
Jazz Times called Manteca one of “contemporary music’s most accomplished and original artists.”
In the group’s forty-one year history they have been one of Canada’s leading musical ambassadors, touring the world’s most prestigious festivals from the Hollywood Bowl to the North Sea Jazz Festival and sharing stages with Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Yellow Jackets, Weather Report and Van Morrison in an explosive high energy show full of joy and exhilarating musicianship.
Their 13 recordings have been released around the world, with numerous releases in the Unites States, Germany, South Africa and Asia.
