After touring South America extensively, Jose arrived in Melbourne in 2008. Here in Melbourne he has formed high calibre bands including Songo Sorongo and his 14 piece original salsa Banda Mundo. Having been described as ‘Latin America’s best musical ambassador,’ his trajectory as a solo musician has granted him nationwide recognition with numerous residencies in some of Melbourne’s most important live music venues and invitations to participate in festivals across Australia.
