About Lobu Bobu
Lobu Bobu is an all acoustic quartet playing the gentler side of Latin music. Much of the band’s repertoire comes from Brazil, and includes bossa novas, sambas, choros and baion rhythms, as well as covering a wide range of jazz and Latin standards. In all cases, the sound is cool, mellow and a more restrained alternative to salsa and “hot” Latin music, whilst still offering the same infectious rhythmic feel.
The band was formed in 1988 and is made up of two acoustic guitars, acoustic bass guitar and percussion. The band members are all active on the London jazz scene and their experience also extends to pop, orchestral, theatre and studio work.
Lobu Bobu’s acoustic sound makes it an ideal choice for background music at receptions, dinners, private and corporate functions, where its gentle rhythms and warm tone bring great atmosphere to an event without being too intrusive. With no need to plug in their instruments, Lobu Bobu is also completely mobile and they are happy to play inside, outside and around a venue. The band has performed widely at many prestigious venues including the Royal Festival Hall, The Barbican Centre, The Royal National Theatre and many West End hotels.
