For your information, the Buena Vista Band is composed of a large variety of talented musicians hailing from Cuba. In addition to several percussion traditional Latin music instruments, such as drums, timpani and congas, along countless wind instruments, such as the trombone and the trumpet, without forgetting the bass, piano and guitar to complete the set. By the way and originally, percussion and claves were the only instruments in Cuban music, but gradually, when these dances became more trendy, more melodic instruments were added.
Adding to this, this big band is accompanied by a group of talented singers, all equipped with unique and expressive voices, able to share so many emotions. This is in a way a certain continuation to the Son tradition, as an exchange between singers and choirs accompanied by Spanish and Latin guitars. A musical style that was invented by farmers and sugar workers, based in Santiago de Cuba in the 1920s, upon a rhythm built by cleaves and maracas, joined by wooden bass, bongos and trumpets.
In another hand, the dance group El Grupo de Bailar reunites several extraordinary Cubandancers who have already proven their dancing skills in and around the World, trained with high level basics, doubled with a certain discipline and professionalism, able to display as much as possible this Cuban vitality (photo credits: Stanisław Jakub Wilk).
Indeed, it’s not a secret that music is deeply anchored in the Cuban habits, along dance and even rhum. For instance, the most popular musical styles are rumba, mambo, cha cha cha (whose origin is the danzon, after being rejected in Cuba) and of course salsa. A bunch of musical styles that are so much acclaimed and popular in Cuba but not only. That’s why, Pasion de Buena Vista is glad to offer you an authentic review from this wide scope of Cuban culture.
Therefore, more than 800,000 spectators have attended this colorful show, that spread among more than 35 countries, where the different facets from Cuba are expressed with this Pasión de Buena Vista (Fidel Daniel Music).
