César "Pupy’ Pedroso, one of Cuba’s most distinguished composers/bandleaders and pianists, brings his 16 piece orchestra to the Opera House 735 Queen street East for the Cuban dance party concert of the year.
Considered ‘the soul of Cuban dance music", Pupy Pedroso is the composer of many of the most popular songs of Los Van Van, of which he was one of the original founding members starting in 1969.
In 2002, Pupy shocked the Cuban music world by leaving Los Van Van to form his own group ‘Los Que Son Son’ , who instantly shot to the front line of Cuban dance groups to rival the popularity of even Los Van Van themselves.
Over the course of three solo albums Pupy Pedroso has reaffirmed his place as one of Cuba’s most gifted composers, while leading his 16 piece band of players half his age in a spectacular music show that has toured Europe and Latin America.
