Son de Cuba:
Son de Cuba is a quintet created by musicians from Chile, Mexico, USA and Cuba. We play different kinds of genres such as Salsa, Timba, Son, Merengue, Boleros, Cumbia, Bachata, Latin Jazz, etc. The band consists of: Vocals, piano and bass piano - Nelson Morales; Lead singer and minor percussion - Freddy Vilches; Sax, flute and vocals - Ramon Brizuela Martinez; American Drummer - Jackson Coffey; percussionist, vocals and band manager - Tony Gonzalez. We are based in Portland, Oregon.
Since three fifths of the band are Cubans, we have roots in latin, african, and jazz rhythms. We blend this vast knowledge of different beats together in classic and modern latin songs, exuding energy, happiness, and encouraging you to dance. With only five performers, we have a full sound and will draw a crowd with our energy and love for our music. Dancing is encouraged, we may even join you!
Our Mission: The Unity Benefit Music Series is a collaborative effort created from the necessity to support artists, reconnect our community, and promote Unity through the healing message of music!
Our focus is to advocate for social equality and address the need to support our local venues, production staff, restaurant workers, and musicians from the devastating effects of our industry shut down.
Description: This benefit music series will feature Portland's top Soul, Latin & Jazz bands.
During the shows, we will spotlight positive tangible commentary from community activists, select nonprofits, and social equality advocates sharing ideas and strategies to unite our divided country.
