UltimaNota’s music is a blend of tropical rhythms with a modern twist. Founded in 2009 in Charlotte, North Carolina with members hailing from Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, El Salvador and Dominican Republic.

Influenced by a broad range of musical styles from Buena Vista Social Club to Bob Marley to Hector Lavoe, UltimaNota is known for creating covers with a uniquely characteristic twist.
