Biography

Costa Rican bass player Fernando Zumbado has gathered together six of the Midwest’s hottest Latin musicians to form the Regional Latin band Escape. Fronted by two steamy vocal talents, this group presents a versatility and energy unmatched by any band in the region. Hailing from the culturally rich regions of Costa Rica, Colombia, and United States.

Escape has put their talents to work in clubs and major festivals in the Midwest region. Their strong musical aptitude has quickly hit a nerve with regional music fans. As a testament to their outstanding musical ability, Escape managed to attract the attention of the Southern Wisconsin, Northern Illinois Latin music lovers and has been nominated for the coveted RAMI award….for the second time in a row!

Fernando Zumbado, who thanks his experiences in Costa Rica, Panamá, Nicaragua and United States, for his rich cultural musical influences, has shared the stage with well known jazz musicians including drummer Paul Wertico (Pat Metheney), saxophonist Mark Colby, as well as Latin sensations José José, Abracadabra, Los Galos, Sandro, Wilfrido Vargas, Luis Enrique and Oscar de León. Fernando is a first call bassist by several groups in the Midwest and has numerous recordings of his music released on the Central American Indica record label.
