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 and original songs to bring  a more ‘salsa dura’ (hard salsa!) feel to there 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!

Note: They changed their name to Salsonique for a while but have changed it back to Son al Son recently.

Hi folks, Thought some of you might be interested in these nights, been to a couple now and were fantastic. Every 2 months 2 bands play high quality music at Letham Village Hall, in Fife which provides a stage for local talent. At each event, the ‘Clap and Tipple’ bar has a fine selection of beer, wines, soft drinks and snacks which are as far as possible locally sourced, organic and/or fair trade.  Room for dancing too.  See http://letham.org.uk/lethamnights/for more details.
