4 piece Cuban-style band “ Son del Monte”
We assure you, you won’t be able to sit still … feet will be tapping, bodies will be moving to the music that carries a spirit of joyful passion and rhythm and invites the listener to dance. Son del Monte perform a passionate and exuberant repertoire of Latin, mostly Cuban music – the style developed when African slaves introduced their music to Cuba. The lively sometimes fiery, sometimes sentimental music (well known from the movie ‘Buena Vista Social Club’) blends Spanish harmonies with African rhythms.
Son del Monte will bring to you the sounds of the Cuban countryside with their own style of traditional Cuban music, including Son, Guajira and Bolero, featuring Spanish guitar, percussion, double bass, saxophone and vocal harmonies.
