Septeto Nacional de Cuba Ignacio Piñeiro are paragon interpreters of son, Cuba’s national music gender par excellence. Decades before the Buena Vista Social Club, the septet performed the compositions of its namesake, transforming them into international standards of the son tradition. Septeto Nacional was formed in 1927 by the first superstar of Cuban son, Ignacio Piñeiro.
The popular Orquesta Broadway has certainly stood the test of time to become not only one of the few New York’s surviving charangas but the longest running charanga band outside of the Cuban island. Fifty years after its foundation and in spite of passing music styles, the always-in-demand Orquesta Broadway still enjoys an enviable position at the forefront of Latin music in the country.
