Good day dear readers.
Recently, I came across a very nice album called “Son X Tres” by the wonderful Tresero Pancho Amat.
The album was great, but one song caught my eye, and the name is in the title; It caught my eye because I have been doing photography for 8 years now, with this being my main hobby outside Cuban music & dancing… so the song strikes my right in the heart 🙂
Leonel Francisco Amat, known as Pancho Amat, is a teacher by education, but more importantly a great Cuban tresero, arranger and composer.
His musical career started in 1971 with the establishment of Grupo Manguere, named after an ancient musical instrument of the people indigenous to south and central America.
The group toured over 25 countries.
After 15 years with the group, Pancho went on to a solo career, working together with such artists as Oscar De Leon, Pablo Milanes and Silvio Rodriguez, touring Europe, north America and Japan.
Pancho is also a winner of many musical awards, such as Cubadisco’s national prize (1995) and best traditional music album of the year (2002).
So, have a good time with this wonderful Son composition!
