Mambo Italiano celebrates the influence of Italian American musicians on the golden age of 1950s jazz and swing. In an energetic, romantic and passionate concert event, award-winning cabaret artist and chanteuse Nadia Sunde, together with an all-star band, takes audiences on a journey into the music of Louis Prima, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Sophia Loren, Bobby Darin, Perry Como…and others.
