Founded in 1993, soon after band director and renowned trombonist, vocalist, percussionist, composer, and arranger César Bauvallet moved from Havana, Cuba to Albuquerque, Son Como Son performs Salsa Cuban Style. Playing regularly over the years to packed audiences comprising highly animated and dedicated salseros at the NM Jazz Workshop's Salsa Under the Stars Series, The Cooperage, and the Telluride Jazz Festival, Son Como Son features some of Albuquerque's most accomplished and busiest musicians, most of whom have been with the band for 27 years! Along with Bauvallet on trombone and vocals, the band consists of Janet Harman, bass and vocals; Mary Wommack, piano and vocals; Víctor Rodríguez, vocals and bongos; Thomas White, drums and timbale; Ricky Carrido, congas; Lester Rodríguez, vocals; John Simms, trumpet and vocals; Kanoa Kaluhiwa, tenor saxophone.
