A special mid-week performance in the series. The Cuban band TradiSón specializes in the musical form son, a combination of Afro-Cuban rhythms and Spanish melody. TradiSón was formed with the goal of presenting the best Cuban musical roots, including guaracha, guajira, bolero and more. TradiSón excudes joy in every performance, whether in restaurants, nightclubs or concert halls. Charismatic lead singer Gilberto Noriega (Cuquito) possesses a natural voice sonero and a proven ability to improvise. Benito Torres (El Beny), a connoisseur of country music, collected much of the repertoire of ballads and accompanies them with the unique guitar style of the Cuban countryside. Amaury Rodriguez is the youngest member of the group, bringing a rock band experience and a salsa groove on percussion. The group is rounded out by Miguel Delgado, on the traditional Cuban tres, and Guillermo Linares on bass and vocals.
For many years, TradiSón were the house band at the La Bodeguita del Medio restaurant in Havana, famous for its mojitos and its storied clientele, including Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Neruda. In 2010, the band performed its first-ever US shows in New Mexico!
