ISSIMO Short Info

ISSIMO are a unique ensemble, fronted by Marc and Abi and backed by the ISSIMITES (a rogue bunch of unruly jazz musicians).

(Marc and Abi are currently touring an acoustic preview of their EP "The Adventures of ISSIMO"

The Genre Defying ISSIMO take influences from many different styles and blend infusions of Latin, Reggae, Ska, Funk and Disco into lyrically driven songs.

Get ready for the funky carnival.
