Adalberto Alvarez Y Su Son


A cuban pianist, director and composer, was born is 1948. Pianist, composer, arranger and director, is unquestionably the Cuban "Sonero"by excellence.

A cuban pianist, director and composer, was born is 1948. Pianist, composer, arranger and director, is unquestionably the Cuban "Sonero"by excellence. Owner of a very personal, unmistakable, harmonic and melodic style, he won the title of "EL Caballero del Son" ("The Son Gentleman") due to the anthological innovations and contributions to this traditional and contemporary genre, which erans him the honor of being, nowadays, the most versioned Cuban sonero at the Latin musical scene over the last 30 years. Well-known as "The Son Gentleman" and within his contributions as musician, we can highlight the fact of having permeated the Son with contemporary streams, to reinsert it from Cuba, in the Salsa..s atmosphere and sonority. This musical genre has ruled the international arena along the last years.

Like Los Van Van, Adalberto Álvarez was a major figure in Cuban popular music long before Timba began, writing dozens of songs which were hits for his own groups, Son 14 and Adalberto Álvarez y su Son, and for many other artists such as Rumbavana as well, both inside and outside of Cuba. He is by all accounts one of the most important and influential figures in the history of Cuban music. When Timba began in the 90's, Los Van Van embraced it, quickly becoming one of the leading Timba bands. Like LVV, Adalberto was also able to retain his status as one of the most popular acts in Cuba, but he did so by staying much closer to his original son style. Nevertheless, his recent music has moved closer to Timba in many ways.

He has collaborated with many key creative figures of the Timba movement, such as arranger Joaquín Betancourt, known for his work with Issac Delgado and many others, Roberto Linares, ex-pianist/arranger for Azúcar Negra, Yoel Cuesta, ex-conguero of Azúcar Negra, Aramís Galindo, who sang with Team Cuba and on Gracias Formell, and now has his own band.
