BIG THANKS

2 10 2018

BIG thanks to everyone who came on Saturday to the Friary , it was a great night, very busy, just over 180 folks in the room I think including the band & bar staff.  We raised £1,241 ( including the donation of £100 from A & J Stephen Builders) for the Azul Wasi project in Peru ( after outgoings which are just under £1120 to put the event on).  This is a FANTASTIC amount to help towards the new shower and toilet block at Azul Wasi.

So big thanks to everyone who brought along friends/ family and to those who kindly donated all the raffle prizes too. Also thanks to all those who helped on the night and before the event with posters etc.

Information about Son al Son.

The band Son al Son was formed in 2008. Its line-up is made up of musicians from Latin America and Scotland.  As the name suggests, Son al Son play son, a style of music made popular in 1920’s Havana and more recently in the film “Buena Vista Social Club”. To this day, songs like Chan Chan, El Cuarto De Tula and Dos Gardenias are played in cafes and bars across Cuba.

Son al Son have added songs from La Excelencia, Cubanismo along with original compositions,Juanito,Cimarron and Morena bring  a more‘salsa dura’ (hard salsa!) feel to their set. Along with the ‘traditional’ songs (with a salsa twist!) and the modern salsa songs,we’re sure Son al Son will get your feet tapping and out of your seat in no time, Gozar! Enjoy!
