The Cuban Sound Comes to Downtown
October 31, 2013

In Cuba it's known as Son. In the States it's best known as the sound of the Buena Vista Social Club, and once you hear it, there's no mistaking the happy-mellow, poly-rhythmic groove, which originated in Santiago de Cuba and is now recognized around the world.

La Familia Valera Miranda, a clan of born musicians who have been playing together for generations, are respected as one of the founding families of Son, and we're happy to let you know that they'll be playing live in the Market on Thursday during lunch.

If you don't know Son, listen here. Dancing is allowed. 

La Familia Valera Miranda

Live in concert at GCM

Thursday, October 31, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Arranged in collaboration with MusicianCorps
