Sonido Cubano was formed in 1998 under the direction of Fernando Mon Padron a.k.a “Picolino”. Since the 60s, 70s and 80s in Cuba, Picolino has been a prominent figure in the salsa and timba stages of Cuban music. He has performed with such greats as the original Roberto Fa, Reyes 73, La Tropicana as well as Los Van Van and many, many others. Having been travelling and performing for over 34 years internationally, Picolino found Toronto to be his home since 1995. Sonido Cubano has been a staple in the Canadian Latino movement of Cuban music. Bringing Salsa Cubana like no other band in the city, Sonido Cubano promises to keep the dancers moving.
After their show earlier in the month, Son Ache is the current definition of “dance party” in Toronto.
One of Toronto’s most popular Cuban music groups, Son Ache performs their patented blend of high-energy son montuno that has been packing dance-floors for many years.
Just $15 for dancing only or $49 for the dinner, dance lesson and show package. Our dinner package guarantees seating for the night and includes any appetizer, any main course and any dessert, the 9pm beginner salsa lesson and three sets by the live salsa band.
This collaboration of some of the top Cuban/Latin musicians in Toronto began in 1999 with mutual goal to compose, interpret and perform classic son montuno, the root of contemporary salsa. Their appeal derives from a successful melding of diverse talent, infectious energy, years of combined musical education, knowledge and experience, and the obvious affection for the music they play: a driving and aggressive tumbao which gives the group it’s contemporary urban edge and ˜sabor (flavour). Son Ache maintains the integrity, tradition and passion, while broadening the allure of old cuban son, and engaging a wider audience of dancers and music lovers of all backgrounds… see “www.myspace.com/elsonache”
