The Quintet OKAKU, was born in the jazz heart of Amsterdam.
Out of pure love for exciting Latin jazz and challenging Bebop classics. Super energetic!
Olaf Keus (Dr) from the Netherlands and Leslie Lopez (Bass)From Puerto Rico form a solid and flexible rhythm section that challenges Daniel de Moraes (Git.)from Uruguay, Fernando Sanchez (Sax)from Spain and Loet of the Lee (Trumpet) from The Netherlands to look up their own limits.
They all Enjoy Clearly, their inspiration feels good to the public. All are specialists in Latin and Jazz and combine their passion to make new pieces together.
