Caña Son’s Album: Available Now on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby
Caña Son’s impressive first effort is played with a very personal style that is clearly identified in Cuban roots. “My teacher is my ancestry” says Juanito Maribona, Caña Son’ band leader. “You can’t learn this on paper. It’s in the veins, in the blood.” This disc features some great tres guitar playing by Cuban musician Ivan Alamo, and some serious trumpet lines by staunch horn man Farnell Newton. Highlights of the disc are rock solid, swinging renditions of tunes by the inventors of Cuban Son, Guillermo Portabales, Ñico Saquito, Francisco Repilado and Celina Gonzalez. But, bottom line this is a great disc of roots DANCE music as played by the next generation of young soneros. Check out the tracks “Dale Tumba”, “El Cuarto de Tula”, “Ya Que Estoy en Mi Cubita” and “Que Viva Chango”!!!
