Sierra Maestra are the guardians of the Cuban son music tradition. The group have preserved this infectious dance music and have gone on to be its finest performers. Their ex-leader, Juan De Marcos González was the man who created Buena Vista Social Club while still with the band.
Sierra Maestra have been stars of Cuban music ever since the late 1970s. They were the first group, and remain the best, of the modern era to play in the old-style son line-up: tres, guitar, trumpet, bongo, güiro and vocals - as during the great days of the 1920s and ‘30s. They have been the pioneers in reviving, and now redefining this style for new generations and reintroducing it into the Cuban mainstream.
Their highly danceable music has wowed audiences at clubs and festivals and around the world and they never fail to get crowds up on their feet and dancing!
