Red hot rhythms straight from the streets of Eastern Cuba return to Chickenshed this September.
Son Yambu play authentic 'Son Cubano' - the essential Afro-Cuban music that originated in the streets of Eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century. Son is a fusion of Spanish and African rhythms and is the root of all salsa music. Formed in 2011, Son Yambu features a new generation of musicians who are all passionate about maintaining the traditions of the genre, continuing the Buena Vista legacy that put Cuban music back on the map in 1997.
Highlights have included playing at the world famous Glastonbury Festival, The Manchester Jazz Festival, The Cheltenham Music Festival, The Africa Oyé Festival , The Cork Jazz Festival, The Edinburgh Mela, The Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo - to name but a few!
Son Yambu bring their audiences a truly sensational, authentic Latin-music experience, and their music is guaranteed to turn any event into a fiesta.
