A Musical Journey
La Habana - Gotemburgo Ida y Vuelta
The Awarded Composer, Singer and Percussionist, Raúl Lara, has formed a dream team of seven Cuban and Swedish Son Musicians - one of Europe's absolute top Cuban groups. Raúl Lara y sus Soneros has been touring Europe since 2009 and their sound is growing stronger by the day. The concept Raúl is aiming at is a traditional Cuban Son with a modern twist. A couple of vocalists, trumpets, trombone, bass, tres, timbales, congas, bongos combined with other typical Cuban percussion such as claves, maracas and güiro.
All music and lyrics written by Raúl himself. The Musicians Raúl has gathered are all well known and have earlier toured and played with the big stars of Cuban music, such as Buena Vista Social Club, Omara Portundo, AfroCuban All Stars, Azucar Negra, Adalberto Alvarez and Soneros All Stars. …the result is pure Cuban joy.
