About Rumba Calzada
Originally formed in 1991, by Boying Geronimo and now headed by his son, Raphael Geronimo, Rumba Calzada has been a favourite with Vancouver’s Latin Jazz and Salsa enthusiasts for over 25 years. Their CD, Volume 3 has been nominated for various awards including a 2002 Westcoast Music Award, a 2002 Canadian Independent Music Award, and a 2003 Juno Award.
Their 2007 release, Rumba Calzada Album 4, was nominated for a 2008 Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding World Recording of the Year. In 2008 the band performed at the Borneo Jazz Festival, in Sarawak, Malaysia and was voted the “crowd favourite” to return in 2009.
