Son Yambu – red hot rhythms straight from the streets of Eastern Cuba.
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. Son is a fusion of Spanish and African rhythms and is the root of all salsa music. Formed in 2011, Son Yambu feature a new generation of 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.
Last year saw them playing at amazing festivals worldwide including The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo, The Cork Jazz Festival in Ireland and Glastonbury here in the UK. They also toured England as part of an Arts Council funded tour and are currently working on their second album.
