Event Details

  • Date:
  • Venue: Arlingtons

Peppery Productions are bringing ‘red hot rhythms’ straight from the streets of ‘Santiago de Cub’ to Grapevine LIVE at Arlies on 9th November 2018.

SON YAMBU play authentic Cuban Son, the intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African music that that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba and gave rise to Salsa. They give this irresistible music a contemporary edge, bringing their audiences a truly sensational, authentic Latin music experience.

Since their debut album ‘La Maravilla’ was released to rave reviews (**** Songlines, **** The Evening Standard), Son Yambu have gone from strength to strength. The band members, who all have a lifetime’s experience playing Son, mainly come from Santiago De Cuba (the birthplace of Son) and are all passionate about maintaining the traditions of the genre and continuing the Buena Vista
legacy that put Cuban music back on the map.
