LATIN RHYTHMS: Son Yambu are coming to Whorlton Village Hall

THE sounds of Cuba come to Whorlton Village Hall later this month.

The band Son Yambu promise authentic Latin-music experience that is guaranteed to turn the hall into a fiesta.

With dance inducing, red-hot rhythms, Son Yambu play authentic “Son Cubano” – or Cuban son – the essential Afro-Cuban music that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century, and gave rise to modern salsa.

Son is the intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African rhythms that is the root of all Salsa.

Formed in 2011, Son Yambu features a new generation of (mainly) Cuban musicians who are all passionate about maintaining the traditions of the genre, continuing the Buena Vista legacy that put Cuban music back on the map in 1997.

Giving their music a contemporary edge, the group play a mix of original compositions, classic Cuban Son and forgotten gems alongside new music from their latest album Tremendo Ambiente released earlier this year.

The show takes place on Thursday, November 21, at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10, £5 children and £25 families.
