Their strongest point are the guarachas, always funny, a bit hot, and with “montunos” (lively rhythm variations on the original score) that make the dance something irresistible. Five albums recorded with Nubenegra show how the top group of Santiago de Cuba improves year by year. Their choreographies, the original repertoire, mainly composed by themselves, and the spark that appears in every song, let them return to many places where they already have performed, leaving a taste for more. Their new album, Los Mangos Bajitos, presents 14 original new songs.
No more covers! The CD makes very clear how they want the sound of their music: live, as if they were on stage. After ten years touring Europe and America, they are not regarded any longer as the grandsons of the Buena Vista Social Club but currently called the Blues Brothers of the Son (which is quite suitable), they always have been unmistakable with their sizzling stage show. If you are in Santiago de Cuba you can´t miss them. Three times a week they play in the best known places.
