Agua de Valencia

Our music is heavy on improvisation and inspired by Cumbia rhythms and modern jazz. Melo Fuentes, front man and composer, came all the way from Spain in 2018 to bring a new flavor of music to New Orleans. Agua de Valencia plays around Frenchmen St every week and is formed by Melo Fuentes (singer/songwriter, trumpet), Jake Gartenstein and Marcello Benetti (drums), Sam Kohler (bass), and Jamie Koffler (keyboard).
