Cassava Latin Band



Cassava is a Latin Band based in Toronto, CANADA who performs musical styles and rhythms from many areas of Latin America. The music reflects the colour and flavour of traditional and contemporary Latin styles such as Salsa, Bolero and Cha-cha-cha from Cuba, Bossa Nova and Samba from Brazil, Cumbia from Colombia, and contemporary Latin-Jazz. They also perform their own original and vibrant compositions.


Cassava's colourful performances at festivals, clubs and special events involve total audience participation and never fail to keep the crowd moving to real Latin rhythms:  “We make the whole audience participate and feel like part of the show”.


Since 1997 Cassava has been performing at various festivals such as Dundas Square, Canadian National Exhibition, Sante, Ritmo y Color Latin Festival at Toronto's Harbourfront, Northern Lights Festival in Sudbury, Niagara Falls, Barrie's Kempenfest, Hamilton & Oakville  Jazz Festivals, Taste of The Danforth, Toronto Street Festival, and many more. In 2006 CASSAVA took part in Ritmo Latino, a series of Latin music concerts at Harbourfront and in 2007 made a successful tour trough the Maritimes performing in major theatres, such as the Capitol in Moncton and The Imperial Theatre in Saint John. As well, it has maintained regular engagements at clubs and restaurants such as Havana Nights, Louisiana, The Honest Lawyer and The Red Violin, in addition to a busy schedule of private functions and festivals throughout Canada.
