16.01.15 : Adalberto Alvarez y Su Son – Camina y Prende el Fogon

Good day dear readers!

There is a reason why the call Adalberto Alvarez y Su Son that way; Adalberto and his band specialize in Son music, which is the basis of all salsa in existence.
This band also often has some traditional instruments not by others, such as the Tress guitar, which is a defining characteristic of Son music and of many “old school” pieces.

Camina y Prende el Fogon is a classic Son composition, originally by Arsenio Rodriguez,  Chappotin and Miguelito Cuni.
Adalberto and his band give it a fresh, more modern interpretation, but still stay true to the origin, thus respecting and paying homage to this wonderful piece of Cuban music.
