Afinca’o is an emerging group of passionate and experienced musicians from the Chicagoland area. Staying true to their roots, the Spanish meaning of their name, Afinca’o was created to bring together some of Chicago’s most musically sound and talented musicians. Though diverse in their musical repertoire, Afinca’o is most noted for their Salsa, Cha-Cha, Latin Jazz, and even some Merengue performances. Adding to the group’s appeal, each of the members have played with world-renowned Latin recording artists, including Gilberto Santa Rosa, Luis Enrique, Victor Manuelle, N’Klabe, Frankie Negron, Eddie Santiago, and many more, all of which help cement the group’s reputable experience. Afinca’o performs for all types of venues and events, so long as they are able to share their spirit and passion for music with all those willing to listen…and dance!
