Cuban cuatro virtuoso Kiki Valera was the musical director of one of the most important groups in the history of the Son Cubano, La Familia Valera Miranda. A continuing force in the evolution of Cuban music, he presents sones, boleros, and guarachas with a band of masters including Coco Freeman (former lead singer of NG La Banda and Adalberto Alvarez y su Son), Carlos Cascante (Spanish Harlem Orchestra), Leider Chappotín (great grand-son of Cuba’s legendary Felix Chappotín) on trumpet. And… they’re setting up a dance floor right in front of the stage!!! The rest of the lineup includes Yanill Nario on bass, Pedro Vargas on bongos, Steve Mostovoy on trumpet, Joe de Jesus on congas, Alfredo Polier on maracas and Javier Marú on guitar.
