Fuego en la Maya
this is third release of Son 14, one of Latin America s finest big bands. Known as 'the maestroes of son , Son 14 celebrate their silver anniversary with 'Fuego en la Maya , a striking example of high octane son from a tight precision band. Founded by Adalberto Alvarez and vocalist Tiburon Morales, as invincible and witty as always, the group is at the forefront of traditional big-band son. Son 14, meaning they are 14, are comprised of 14 top Cuban musicians unequalled in string, percussion and brass. Interacting, reacting and imitating each others rhythms within layers of percussion and a breathless pace, they then mellow the mood with a slightly slower cumbia and a gentle bolero.
Produced under the musical direction of Geovanis Alcantara Lopez . Eduardo (Tiburon) Morales infuses the flavour of traditional son alongside the salsero Ruben Rodriguez and the romantic boleros of Salvador Lorens.
This is an exceptional example of traditional Cuban sounds from the band at the forefront of son, with the legendary husky vocals of Tiburon Morales and the romantic voice of Salvador Llorens and the voice of Oscar D'Leon of Cuba Ruben Rodriguez.
