Description

Members of Sabor have Hispanic roots in Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. From these places, they bring us the sounds of salsa, rumba, merengue, cha cha cha, guaguanco, and mambo. And Sabor believes that playing in South Carolina is extra special because it is the birthplace of Dizzy Gillespie, "the father of Latin jazz!" 

The members of Sabor are:

James Alescio, Drums
Edryss Diego, Congas and Vocals
Wade Johnson, Flugal Horn and Trumpet
Juan Lanzot, Timbales and Lead Vocals
Hariff Manzan, "Bongocero," Bongos and Campana (cowbell)
Josh Martin, Baritone Sax, Claves and Guiro
