Biography

Mikata has been delighting audiences
around the USA, in Canada and abroad
for the past twenty years. Recipient of

“outstanding contribution to the
cultural life of the community”, Mikata
has performed at clubs in New York City,
(S.O.B.’s, Heart Break, Danceteria,
Pyramid Club), at colleges and
universities around the country and at
concerts and festivals in the US, Canada
and Japan.

Mikata performs a full repertoire of
hard-hitting Salsa, Merengue, Bachata,
Bolero, Cha-cha and Latin Jazz. The band
is renowned for their contemporary
arrangements of the great classics of
Mambo and Salsa from the1950’s, 60’s
and 70’s. This was the era when the
dynamic, percussive quality of Latin
music reigned supreme and Mikata
brilliantly brings this element to the fore
in its virtuoso performances.

In addition to great Jazz soloing from the
horn and rhythm sections, Mikata
provides a short Salsa dance lesson
during performances for those who need
to brush up on their steps.

Mikata is a community-based group that
knows how to create community with
music. Whoever their audience is Mikata
is guaranteed to get them up, dancing
and having the time of their lives.
