A fresh blend of jazz and pop



Based in Guanacaste, with roots in Québec, California, and 90 years of recorded jazz, MANGO TAXI is an extraordinary mix of jazz classics and original compositions, a uniquely sophisticated brand of sunset music that complements the finest settings on the Golden Coast of Costa Rica. Intriguing beats and well-crafted grooves support beautiful melodies and subtle explorations - enticing the ear, without intruding. It is music that takes the edge off a perfect day, that whets the appetite for fine dining, creative cocktails, vintage wine and sparkling conversation.

Mango Taxi is available as a simple Duo, as a trio (with  percussion), as well as a full quartet.
