Malamanya / Press

“The six-member ensemble does an inspiring job of playing to the genre's roots. ”

“Malamanya have served to nourish the joys of life…and it will be equally pleasureful to see where they will take us—and the rest of the world—next. Danny Sigelman”

“Malamanya is no garden-variety salsa band. Drawing on Cuban son and other traditional folk music, the group of Twin Cities natives -- singer Adriana Rimpel, bassist Tony Schreiner, trumpet player Jason Marks, percussionists Jesse Marks and Luis Ortega and guitarist Trevor May -- has fashioned an acoustic sound that creates a timeless connection and joyous blues that's as old as the working class itself. -Jim Walsh Star Tribune”
