La Máquina Musical
One of the most influential fomations of Cuban son, their music has got a big flavour of authenticity, really refreshing.
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.
