Guataca means “play by ear” in Caribbean slang, and that captures the essence of this trio. Led by bassist Josh Levine (New York) , fronted by singer/percussionist Jainardo Batista (Puerto Rico) and rounded out by trés player Itai Kriss (Tel Aviv), Guataca trio plays Salsa and Són Monuno classics straight from the heart.

Guataca Trio is:

  • Jainardo Batista – percussion and vocals
  • Josh Levine – bass and vocals
  • Itai Kriss – trés and vocals
