Orquesta De Felipe Valdés


Felipe Valdés was a cornetist and composer born in Bolondrón, Matanzas, in the second half of the 19th century. He founded his orchestra in 1899, and it became popular in Havana. Its instrumentation in 1916 was: 3 violins; 2 clarinets; cornet; trombone; double bass; saxophone; güíro and timbales. Probably it had started with a figle, and later substituted the saxophone. They included a piano by 1929. The group recorded more danzones than any other before 1920. Read more on Last.fm
