Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkesta is an Indie Mambo and World music band from Tucson, Arizona. The band's music is a simmering meltdown of Mexican mambo, psychedelic cumbia, ranchero, merengue, rumba, jazz and indie-rock.
Sergio Mendoza formed Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkesta in 2009 out of a one-off tribute project to the Cuban mambo king Pérez Prado, which proved too much fun to stop. Later renamed the band's name to Orkesta Mendoza.
In October, 2014, Orkesta Mendoza performed at WOMEX 14 Official Showcase Selection of World Music Expo 2014.
In May, 2015, Orkesta Mendoza performed at Pachanga Latino Music Festival.
