About Son de Cuba

Son de Cuba

Son de Cuba is a quintet created in August 2015 by musicians from USA and Cuba. We play different kinds of genres such as Salsa, Timba, Son, Merengue, Boleros, Cumbia, Bachata, Latin Jazz, etc. The band consists of: Vocals, piano and bass piano player, Nelson Morales; singer and minor percussion, Geisy Almanza; singer and percussionist; Sax, flute and vocals, Ramon Brizuela Martinez; American Drummer, Jackson Coffey, and percussionist, vocals and band manager Tony Gonzalez. We are based in Portland, Oregon.

Since four of the band members are Cubans, we have roots in Latin, African, and Jazz rhythms. We blend this vast knowledge of different beats together in classic and modern latin songs, exuding energy, happiness, and encouraging you to dance. With only six performers, we have a full sound and will draw a crowd with our energy and love for our music. Dancing is encouraged, we may even join you!
