Son Yambu play authentic ‘Son Cubano’ or Cuban son – the essential Afro-Cuban music that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century. The root of all salsa music, Son is a fusion of Spanish and African rhythms. Son Yambu feature a new generation of mainly Cuban musicians who are passionate about maintaining the traditions of the genre, continuing the Buena Vista legacy that put Cuban music back on the map.
