Linda Briceño & Maite Hontelé
Two female trumpet virtuosos playing jazz, salsa and more...
A unique meeting of two great musicians.
Linda Briceño and Maite Hontelé met at the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas in 2014 where they were both nominated in different categories (Hontelé for Best Salsa Album and Briceño for Best New Artist).
Maite Hontelé (Dutch, but based in Medellín, Colombia) has conquered the latin music-scene in the last 6 years, while Linda Briceño (Venezuelan but based in New York) has escalated fast in the jazz scene with her trumpet ánd voice.
After meeting again in New York in December 2015 they decided to create a new musical world together, where jazz and latin music meet in a completely new way.
They are being accompanied by a latin-jazz quartet, with piano, bass, congas and timbales.
