Jesus Cutino and Son de Cuba

8 Piece Modern Cuban Salsa Band

Jesus Cutino and Son de Cuba

Son de Cuba are an 8 piece modern Cuban salsa band, based in London!

SON DE CUBA is an exciting London based band fronted by guitarist/songwriter Jesus Cutino. Their repertoire displays both the flamenco and African roots of Cuban music. It consists mostly of Jesus' compositions (No Me Castigues, Tu Boca, Corazon Apagao, Me Causa Pena, Una Miraita, Yo Quiero Fiesta...) as well as some Cuban and Colombian modern classics (Los van Van, Bamboleo...). Style and instrumentation range from traditional cha-cha-cha to hot and pulsating timba and reggaeton.

With a line-up of seven Cuban and one Italian musicians, all considered among the best Latin musicians in London, the band has successfully created its own identity and an innovative sound which intertwines traditional Cuban 'son', mambo, samba, flamenco and reggaeton. It is fast, exciting, romantic and eminently danceable.

The band's hot mix of modern Cuban beats and Jesus' charismatic stage presence have attracted an enthusiastic following on the London club scene and guarantee to get any audience up and dancing.

SON DE CUBA have performed at various world music and jazz venues that include Ronnie Scott's (the band has a residency at Ronnie Scott's Upstairs), Momo's, Passing Clouds, Charlie Wrights International, Floridita, Jazz Cafe Posk and the New Empowering Church. They also perform regularly for some of the best promoters of Cuban music and arts in the UK, and abroad they have performed in Taiwan, Spain and Italy. They recently performed at the Hop Farm Festival in Kent (July 2010) and the Cultura y Cubania Festival in London (October 2010).
