Good day dear readers, listeners and blog followers!
Today I present you a beautiful and romantic Son Montuno (originally a Cumbia) composition by Cuban-Peruvian band Septeto Acarey.
The 7 member (as the name suggests…) group was formed in 2014 by Cuban bassist Reynier Perez from Guanabacoa, former bassist of Mayimbe, with 2 more Cubans and 4 Peruvian musicians, and includes bass, Tress, congas, bongos, guitar, trumpet and vocals.
All members are virtuoso musicians, sharing between them over 100 years of playing traditional and modern Cuban music.
The band’s album, Acarey Ya Llego, was released earlier this year, and has a variety of originally written & composed and beautifully executed themes in various genres of Cuban music such as Son, Bolero and Son Montuno.
