conKlave Latin Fusion Band

conKlave Latin Fusion Band


ConKlave has a unique Latin sound called Latin Fusion that put together Caribbean rhythms with Spanish and English lyrics and an explosive groove that will make you jump from your seat and dance. Conklave is not just a band; it's THE Latin Fusion Band of the moment for any event. Check on it!


One of the most exhilarating Latin fusion supergroups to emerge from the First Coast’s music scene is conKlave (pronounced con CLAH-vay). The band’s scintillating blend of genres includes music from the Caribbean, South America, and the U.S.: Salsa, Songo, Cumbia, Rock, Timba, Merengue, Funk, Cha-Cha-Cha, Samba, Bossa Nova and Bachata
conKlave, literally means “with clave", which is the backbone and primary pulse of many AfroCuban, Caribbean and South American styles of music. It is also the name of a common percussion instrument, consisting of a pair of cylindrical wooden sticks.
conKlave creates pulsating, Latin-inspired grooves for both dancers and listeners. It performs such driving rock Español tunes as Santana’s “Guajira” and Mana’s “Corazon Espinado,” traditional AfroCubano dance numbers like Charanga Habenera’s “Baile Azucar,” popular South American folk tunes including “Negra Tomasa,” and imaginative arrangements of such classic rock anthems as Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love.”
The Jacksonville-based band is comprised of experienced musicians, all of whom have played in some of the area’s leading Latino ensembles (Ya’Gozo, Strings of fire, Ritmo y Sabor, Renacer Gaitero, etc.)
Translation: conKlave absolutely smokes!
