Gumbi Ortiz

Have congas, will travel - that pretty much defines funky and frenetic world of Gumbi Ortiz “Pronounced Goombi”, who brings his rich Puerto Rican/Cuban heritage and a lifetime of eclectic musical influences and experiences - from jazz/fusion, pop and funk to retro-soul, samba and even a hint of Irish jig--to his highly anticipated solo debut Miami. Renowned throughout the world for his nonstop tours over the past 19 years with fusion guitar legend Al Di Meola, the charismatic conguero gathered a powerful ensemble of jazz greats (most longtime friends, naturally) in fashioning a multi-cultural tribute to the New York native’s adopted home state of Florida, where he has lived since 1980.
