“Really added to the atmosphere of our wedding and couldn’t recommend highly enough. Friendly, approachable and accommodated all our requests. We had a tipi wedding and all of our guests said how great the band sounded, just wish we had booked for longer! ”

Caribanda added a little bit of latino magic to our evening!

The Best Wedding I've Ever Been too!

5 stars - Caribanda are Highly Recommended
booked Caribanda for their Wedding in London

“Yes it was my own wedding so I'm bound to be a little bias, however the title is not my words but that of several of my guests. In no small part due to Caribanda! A very professional and talented collection of musicians. The whole experience was like being transported to exotic shores they really got my reception going and people were on the dance floor for hours. They could easily be an act from Ronnie Scotts or Jools Holland show. If you're looking to do something a little different with your wedding day I highly recommend Caribanda!”

The authentic sound you get across many dancehalls in Cuba
