Ozomatli and Eminem

An intoxicating & delightful affair

Veneno will leave a massive smile on your face

An entertainment phenomenon not to be missed”

UK Music Review 2009

Veneno came to life in Sydney, Australia

When brothers Cesar and Steve Marin

began playing music together as kids

after emigrating from Latin America

Inspired by the music of bands such as Los Van Van

and Irakere they found their path through the music of Cuba

The decision was made to find like-minded musicians

with the intention of forming a band dedicated

This musical endeavour led to the formation of VENENO

The early addition of young singer/songwriter Carlos Velazquez

lifted the project to new heights

With a versatile mix of RNB, pop and soul

together with his domination of the Afro-Latin Sonero traditions

the band had found its unique and original voice

The following years were spent performing around the country

building a healthy fan base & establishing themselves.

Their world class musicianship & performance levels

led to the band being recognized internationally.

Veneno are constantly invited to perform

at major festivals and events.

This momentum created an opportunity

to collaborate with musicians

outside the Latin genre.

The addition of talented young musicians

Ivan Pineda, Marcus Salone,

Daniel Goodacre & Dominic Kirk

enabled Veneno

To incorporate advanced elements of

Funk, Reggae, Jazz and Rock into their music.

The natural composition progression

unearthed a new alternative sound.

While the Afro-Latin influences were still present,

the bands original ‘Son’ influences

developed in to a brand new genre of music … Veneno

This evolution contributed to the band’s success,

becoming the first Australian-Latin ensemble

to make its mark in the global music industry.

Veneno’s diversity continued over the years,

composing, recording and performing

with many international artists including

Ozomatli

Kelis

Maceo Parker

Cubanismo

Los De Abajo

Metallica

Reve Y Su Charangon

Fulanito

Cuban trumpeter Armando Garcia

Primo Vocalists

Holly Ottignon
