Please call or click on "Request Information" to request live samples of our latinjazz trio, quartet, quintet, and sextet, to determine whether our music would be appropriate for your event or celebration. I think it probably is, since our music could go both ways: it can be as soft or as lively as needed or wanted, and isn't boring due to the Latin rhythms. Additionally, since we're using hand percussions (bongos, congas, tambora, shakers, etc.) instead of a drum set, we take very little space and have total control over the volume.

And we've added jazz improvisation not only to the salsa rhythm (which is more common), but also to the merengue, cumbia, bachata and bolero, creating what we call salsajazz, merenguejazz, cumbiajazz, bachatajazz and bolerojazz, which can be very appropriate as a "non-interfering" type of background music.

For soft music we perform mostly bolerojazz and bachatajazz; for more lively music we do salsajazz, merenguejazz and cumbiajazz.

We purposely created our demos from "live recordings" - recordings done without computerized corrections - with all the chats, noises and imperfections of a live performance, so you get to experience the group in a real, actual "live" setting: what you hear is what you'll get.

We play both Latin and American cover tunes, but add a Latin flavor to the American ones to make them more interesting and special.

I'm a full time musician, a Berklee graduate, and leader and guitar player of this instrumental Latin ensemble that varies from a trio to a sextet.

The instrumentation for the trio is: Spanish-electric guitar, keyboard (who also does the bass) and hand percussion. For larger ensembles, more percussion and a separate bass are added.

We hired The Camelia LatinJazz Band in July to play at our daughter’s Baby Naming ceremony in Brewster, MA. We were so glad to have found The Camelia Latin Jazz Band whose band leader is Rod Camelia . We chose them after seeing their videos on Youtube. Their music stood out from the other bands we had viewed. Their music captures the elegant rhythms of jazz and combines it with the energy of Spanish and Latin beats. Not only is Rod and the band members exceptionally good musicians but they were easy to work with, professional, and played all the music that we requested. They arrived early and were flexible about the setup location. When communicating by email before the party, Rod always responded quickly and thoughtfully and was easily accessible throughout the planning process. All our guests loved the music and we received many compliments. They have a great sound system that allowed everyone to converse without being drowned out by the sound, but it was loud enough to be listened to at an enjoyable level. We highly recommend The Camelia LatinJazz Band and will definitely hire them again if the opportunity arises.
