Cabanijazz Project infuses Mambo Jazz & Retro Latin Dance music together gathering inspiration from the Mambo of the 40's & 50's, Jazz of the 60's, and Funk from the 70's; we marinate those genres together and compose original music as well as rearranging some classic compositions for the listening and dancing crowds.

Cabanijazz Project is led by GRAMMY® Award-Winning Composer and Conguero, Javier Cabanillas. He is most recognized for his recording and touring work as conguero in the GRAMMY® Award-Winning for Best Latin Tropical Album of the year, Pacific Mambo Orchestra.

In addition, his versatility, dedication and passion has allowed him to tour with Tito Puente Jr., Marlow Rosado, Willy Torres (Spanish Harlem Orchestra) and has collaborated with artists such as Tito Nieves, Sheila E., Arturo Sandoval, Alex Acuña (Elvis Presley and Weather Report), Tania Libertad, Frankie Negrón, Karl Perazzo (Carlos Santana), Brian Jordan (Lauryn Hill), Ray Obiedo (Herbie Hancock), Adrian Terrazas-Gonzales (The Mars Volta), Tommy Igoe, Tom E.
