Son Yambu

Red-hot rhythms straight from the streets of Santiago De Cuba

With irresistible, red-hot rhythms Son Yambu play authentic ‘Son Cubano’ or Cuban son – the essential Afro-Cuban music that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century, and gave rise to modern salsa.

Formed in 2011, Son Yambu feature a new generation of (mainly) Cuban musicians who are all passionate about maintaining the traditions of the genre.
