Septeto Nacional de Ignacio Piñeiro de Cuba

April 10, 2011 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


For more than 80 years, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro de Cuba has reigned supreme as the world’s foremost champion and protector of Cuban son, the musical heartbeat of Cuba. The 7-piece band was founded in 1927 by the late Ignacio Piñeiro Martínez, the wildly prolific Cuban bassist and composer known affectionately as “El Poeta del Son.” Since then, the group has seen an array of Cuban musical superstars pass through its ranks to carry Piñeiro’s musical torch as leaders of the group, keeping the original acoustic Rumba sound alive. In 2009, the septet made history with its highly acclaimed return to the United States — its first American tour in 76 years!
