Cubas leading son group SIERRA MAESTRA are back touring in Europe in 2007 promoting their latest album SON - soul of a nation, their heart-felt tribute to son music, and are now celebrating the 30th year since their formation.
Sierra Maestra have been stars of Cuban music ever since the late 1970s.
They were the first group, and remain the best, of the modern era to play in the old-style son line-up: tres, guitar, trumpet, bongo, güiro and vocals - as during the great days of the 1920s and 30s. They have been the pioneers in reviving this style for new generations and reintroducing it into the Cuban mainstream. They named themselves after the mountain range in the eastern part of Cuba as a tribute to the birthplace of son.
The group have played a significant part in the recent global explosion in popularity of Cuban music. Ex-leader Juan De Marcos González created the Afro-Cuban All Stars and Buena Vista Social Club while still with the band, and Jesus Alemañy, previously trumpet with Sierra Maestra for 15 years, left to create his group Cubanismo. Yet the new tres, percussion and trumpet players, and now a new singer have joined the five original members to make the group line-up perhaps the strongest ever.
