If you're looking for beautiful live music, that fits and enhances your event, if you'd like to hire talented artists who are friendly and congenial, we are the band for you!
Working with the Xarás Trio was such a wonderful experience. I was losing my head a little with a DIY backyard wedding and running around for set-up, but they were quick to set-up and get settled! The music sounded beautiful and we got a lot of people asking for their information. Highly recommend!
Manena her group were very good. Our guests loved the music. They were very easy to work with, on time and professional. I’d hire them again.
We hired Xarás Trío for my parents party and they were worth every penny! They sounded great! All of the guests were very impressed. I would definitely hire them again.
Xaras Quartet, had four members who performed for us was expert and professional in everyway. They were on-time, played beautifully, and had all the equipment they needed.
Manena was very detailed to be sure everything was perfect for your entertainment requirements.
They were professional and talented. Everyone at the event loved the music. We will definitely be using them again!

Xarás Trio is a Jazz, Bossa-Nova and Latin-Jazz ensemble based in Los Angeles. The trio was formed in 2012. Since then, we have grown into a larger ensemble. Individually we have lived, studied and performed all over the world, including Europe, North and South America and the Caribbean. Drawing from our diverse backgrounds we have created a beautiful repertoire, which is constantly evolving. Our music reflects a harmonious fusion of cultures and genres: Jazz, Bossa-Nova, Latin-Jazz, French-Jazz, as well as music from the Spain, Cuba, Perú and the US. Thanks to the vast artistic education, talent and professional experience that each of us brings to the ensemble, we can entertain with great ease in any setting, from a casual back-yard party, to the most elegant gala or formal event.
