"The word CAZU was actually compiled from our formal longer name in Spanish CANDELA & AZUCAR (CANDLE & SUGAR). The CA was extracted from CANDELA and the ZU from AZUCAR."
IMPACT 11’s Saturday night social event will feature Cazu Latin Band and their rhythmic fusion of a variety of musical styles — Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, Salsa, bolero, Guajira, Cha Cha Cha and more. Performing in Spanish and English, they’re influenced by a rich variety of genres—classical, rock, brass, jazz, tropical Latin bands and music from the Andes just off the top of their heads. Cazu’s numbers of swelled from four to ten and includes musicians from places as diverse as Venezuela and Kuwait. Collectively they bring over 50 years of musicianship and create a mixture of music and cultures that is a constant reminder of the international language of music, using their individual styles to create a unique fusion of sound. We hope you’ll join us and dance the night away.
About Cazu Latin Band
We perform in both English and Spanish for the young and old. We have created unique Latin musical arrangements of some classic English songs. Have you ever heard the Bee Gees, The Eagles or Lionel Richie in a Latin style? With us you will.
CAZU (pronounced KAZOO) Latin Band was formed in September 2009 in Kitchener, Ontario Canada with only four members. Now we are ten members from the cities of Cambridge, Waterloo and Guelph.
