Son de Canela, Lula Lounge on Fri night Jan 4 2012

Son de Canela – Trumpet prodigy Janette Lennys leads this group through a rich repertoire of Latin and traditional Cuban music, weaving together the threads of African, French, and Spanish culture which unify the Cuban people.

It’s a dance party people… the girls come out dressed up to show how nice they clean up, then they start playing and they kick off their shoes and … what’s the point of putting on airs if everybody just wants to move and shake?  You can’t fail to have a good time with this…

Mario Allende leads off with jazzy latin-toned grooves at 8 pm, dance lesson, the band at 10:30 pm.
