 Mento Buru is a wild 8-piece band that combines Jamaican SKA, rock, funk, salsa, hip-hop, jazz, and punky reggae creating a maddening musical experience.

Mento has been gigging non-stop since '91 and shows no sign of stopping. This band lives to play live and always gives the audience everything it has boiling in it's stew of rhythm!

There’s a big rumor of a special guest star (guide) who will be accompanying them on a few songs. This will be a special treat!!!

 Thanks!
