7 piece Scottish Cuban Salsa Band

Son Al Son Scottish Cuban salsa band

The band Son al Son was formed in 2008. Its line-up is made up of musicians from Cuba, Ricardo Fernandes Pompa, (Bongos) Eric Alfonso (Congas), with Venezuelan Lino Rocha on velvety Vocals and Guiro (hand percussion), and from Scotland, Bob Thomson (Bass) and Lorne Cowieson (Trumpet) and Simon Gall on Piano and Vocals

As the name suggests, Son al Son play "son" music, a style of music made popular in 1920's Havana and more recently in the film "Buena Vista Social Club".

To this day, songs like Chan Chan, El Cuarto De Tula and Dos Gardenias are played in cafes and bars across Cuba, and Son al Son have recreated this authentic vibe to bring a little bit of Havana to you

Son al Son play a lively set of traditional Cuban songs guaranteed to get your feet tapping and out of your seat in no time, A Gozar! Enjoy!
