How long does the band play for?
The standard playing time is 2 sets of 50 or 3 sets of 35 minutes.
Can I have longer or shorter sets?
Yes, with prior discussion we are able to fit the music to the timings of your event.
How many musicians are in the band?
In general, the band performs as a 4 piece for Latin jazz music and with 5 - 8 musicians for dance events.
What style of music do you play?
We are a band that plays both Latin American music and Latin jazz.
Can I have a mixture of both?
Yes, we find both styles are frequently requested for an eclectic performance.
How does Riamba Duo perform?
Two key members - the singer and percussionist - are augmented with backing-tracks, to create a full sound on a compact scale.
How much space do you require?
We require surprisingly little space as the majority of the band will be standing. As an approximate guide; a four piece band would need a space
of 3 x 2 metres (width x depth) and a six-eight piece, 4.5 m x 3.5 metres.
What other facilities are required?
A minimum of two mains (3 pin) power sockets need to be located in the performance area.
A room for changing and storage is required.
Outdoor events must have suitable cover over the performance area.
