Timbeko features Carlitos Medrano on congas and percussion, bass player Ayla Davila, guitarist David Lechuga, pianist Jason Moen, vocalists and saxophone player Mario “Mayombe’ Cruz, vocalist and guitar player Jordan Wilson. They made their debut on the streets of Oakland at the 2018 Temescal Street Fair. Timbeko incorporates elements of R&B, Gospel, Jazz and Funk into the sounds of popular Cuban Salsa, also known as Timba. They have performed in multiple festivals: Oktoberfest, Hayward Latin Jazz Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Fest, San Francisco Carnaval, Pecan Street Festival in Austin Texas, and the best clubs in the Bay Area such as Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco, Freight & Salvage, The New Parish, SF JAZZ Center, SF.  Parker Jazz in Austin, and others in San Antonio and Houston Texas, and Miami Florida as well, also performed a live set for “Con Sabor” on KPFA Radio. 

They are considered the Bay Area’s and recently Austin TX hottest Latin band, on one of their shows they featured musicians from Los Van Van, Grammy Award Winners, and one of the best bands from Cuba. On their single “Nadie sabe nada, they feature Yordys Larrazabal, lead singer of Maykel Blanco y su Salsa Mayor, another top Cuban salsa band. Recently Timbeko released a new single “Sola te quedaste” song that has great acceptance in the Salsa/Timba community in a lot of places around the world.
