Maite Hontelé & Linda Briceño

Two female trumpet players playing jazz, salsa and everything in between.

A unique meeting of two great musicians:
Linda Briceño and Maite Hontelé met at the Latin Grammys in 2014 where they were both nominated in different categories, and decided to create this new world, where jazz and latin meet in a completely new way.

Bio Maite Hontelé:
Nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in the category Best Salsa Album, trumpeter Maite Hontelé is transforming the role of women in music. People in America, Europe and Asia have witnessed her magical talent and the way she performs on stage. Born in Holland, but Colombian in her heart, Maite's music is a perfect mix of European elegance and tropical joy, which is reflected in her 4 albums: Llegó la Mona, Mujer Sonora, Déjame Así, and Te Voy a Querer, the last two edited in vinyl. Also know as 'Mujer Sonora', Maite has collaborated with artists such as Rubén Blades, Buena Vista Social Club, Chocquibtown, Oscar D´León, among others, all of them lured by her style.

Quote Oscar D´León (salsa star):

She is the best the world has to offer, enjoy her! The ways she plays is extraordinary, outstanding!

Bio Linda Briceño:
At only 24 Linda already owns an impressive list of achievements that would normally take any artist many years to accomplish: trumpet player, singer, Big Band Director and composer. Renowned musician and Jazz at Lincoln Center Musical Director, Wynton Marsalis expresses his awe on Linda when he says: “ She possesses an excellent awareness of time, rhythm and a great sound, but above all she has a deep understanding of musical concepts and ideas. There is a weight in her sound, weight, weight”.
At 10 years of age, Linda participated in her first musical studio production by the now extinct label “Latin World” entitled “Tocando Tierra”. In it, she shared the studio with the likes of: Alex Acuña, Paquito D’Rivera, Armando Manzanero, Bela Fleck, Don Grusin, Abraham Laboriel, Ary Barroso, Pedro Esutache and Roger Nichols among others, she being the youngest artist in the recording. In 2010 and 2011 she was invited several times to participate as a soloist of The Miami Symphony Orchestra and Simón Bolívar Orchestra, Arturo Sandoval and Paquito de Rivera. In 2012, she made a special guest appearance with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, thus becoming the first Venezuela woman to perform with this famous orchestra.
Recently she released her first record that was nominated for a Latin Grammy.
