Banda Ash

Banda Ash  was borned, as a pilot project, by the percussionist Yonder de Jess in  2009 and it was consolidated in its current formation with their first recording project, "Antao con Swing", in 2013.

Through a repertoire which combines our own songs and cover versions of anthological Cuban songs, we try to show our own perspective on this music, through the renewal of the principal cells of the Son, combining traditional sounds with other more contemporary, but always respecting the concept and authenticity that give meaning to this genre.

We propose a very innovative formula that suggests a fusion of the Typical Orchestra with its violins and the Set of Son with its trumpets that is our main hallmark nowadays when the strings have been gradually replaced by metal sections at almost all Cuban groups.

We have performed in the main Latin music concert halls in Barcelona, various popular festivals in Catalonia and Andorra, and in many private events.
