Cao Laru with Emily & Mambo
The Vale are excited to welcome these talented musicians who travel the whole world, travellers who make music all over the world; A whole world that becomes music and travel. It’s hard to explain what Cao Laru is about, this band that has been conquering ears, minds and hearts around the world since it was born in 2016 in Rennes (France).
Their sound is an explosive mix of Brazilian, Latin and Mediterranean rhythms. Their live performance is mesmerising because it combines elements of dance and theatre. Although sung in Spanish, Portuguese and French, their songs speak a universal language, communicating to all audiences.
Jon Mambo is a guitarist, vocalist, bass player and writer. He got his nickname ‘Mambo’ from earlier years as guitarist in the Manchester based Afro-Latin Jazz ensemble ” The Mambo’s”. Emily is a singer from Manchester whose powerful voice has sung in many different genres from classical to funk. From an early age she trained as a Soprano and at the age of 18 was asked by the famous ‘Iain Mellor’ to sing a Brazilian song with the then Brazilian Percussion collective Cabasa and the Northern Chamber Orchestra.
