A cross between street jazz (think New Orleans brass) and Latin jazz. Pleasant, friendly and fun, although not as wacky as the song titles might suggest.
Instrumentation consists entirely of horns and Latin percussion -- high energy but very pared down, giving it a field-recording/third-world kind of sound (albeit cleanly recorded in New England). The ensemble is good and tight, but the sound gets monotonous in large doses.
