Of the musical genre of merengue and Latin pop, Mamajuana is one of the most innovative, attractive and exciting Dominican bands of our time. The idea is conceived by Eddi Gonzalez, director and leader of the group, who, with his creativity and composing style, is able to arrange and produce merengue in order to open new frontiers for this classical Caribbean genre to the entire world. More than a merengue band, Mamajuana is a musical concept that transports us to ethnic legacy. Mamajuana is a song to our ancestors with a mixture of funny, contemporary, romantic and sensual lyrics.
Mamajuana combines a variety of hypnotic rhythms brought from the rich and diverse "Afro-Caribbean" culture that exists in the Dominican Republic.
Mamajuana is backed by a 7 piece orchestral powerhouse of brasses, percussions, drums, keyboards, bass, and guitar. The vocals are performed by a three talented young and attractive singers, unleashing an unforgettable entertainment experience.
