While the whole world is tuning its ear to the musical showcase of the Caribbean and Latin America, Oklahoma is not left behind. Salsa and Merengue music are two genres flowing through Oklahoma that within recent years have gained much popularity among dancers, college students, Latinos and non-Latinos alike. With an average of 15 years experience in the music business, the members of Son del Barrio (Sound of the Neighborhood) are no strangers to the world of Latin music. Their passion for the music they play can be heard as they drive hypnotic rhythms and deliver enchanting melodies. With as much energy as their songs have, there is no option for listeners but to dance and forget about their cares.

Son del Barrio was formed in July of 2002. Forming the rhythmic foundation of Son del Barrio is Armando Rivera, a Congero from Guadalajara, México, Antonio Pacheco, a Timbalero from New York, and Daniel Caldero, a Bongocero from Chicago. Much to the benefit of Son Del Barrio, the gentlemen represent the best Latin percussionists in the state and are true veterans of the music scene. Rounding out the group on vocals are singers Robert Ruiz from San Antonio, Wilmari Ruiz, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, and Osmay Gutierrez Danger from Pinar del Rio, Cuba. These singers also play the trombone, flute, and trumpet, respectively.

Together these musicians recreate the sounds and feelings that are experienced everyday in the world’s Latino neighborhoods for all audiences. Through its musical diversity and energy, Son Del Barrio has the power to please all Latin Music enthusiasts and the ability to energize a wide-variety of events. For an exciting and fun filled performance, enjoy the tropical treasures of Son del Barrio!

Son del Barrio is a member of the Oklahoma Art's Council Touring Roster and Mid-America Touring Roster.
