If you like your world music with a jazzy, sometimes oblique edge, this is the band for you. Certified Mango presents all original music composed by Paul ‘Garbanzo’ Gibbons with influences ranging from Cuban Rumba and Mambo, to Tango, Samba, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, and North African beats. Moods move from dreamy, groovy and hypnotic to up-beat and danceable. All six musicians are from the New Denver/Silverton/Kaslo area: Howard Bearham on saxes, Aiko Jackson on piano, Shelley Dobie on bass, Lorna Visser on clarinet, Tsuneko ‘Koko’ Kokubo on bongos and percussion, Paul Gibbons on congas.
Certified Mango is pleased to be part of the SIlverton Gallery’s “Live at the Gallery” CD project. This is the final concert in the recording series which is supported by a grant from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.
