Biography

WE PLAY TRADITIONAL CUBAN MUSIC, TROVA, MUSICA CAMPESINA, BOLEROS, CHANGUI AND "SON" WHICH IS OUR BEST PERFORMANCE. OUR MUSIC IS SIMILAR TO BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB, POLO MONTANEZ, PEDRO LUIS FERRER, LOS COMPADRES, AMONG OTHER GREAT ARTISTS OF THE SON CUBANO. OUR BAND HAS 6 MEMBERS WELL KNOW IN THE INDUSTRY.

TRESERO AND GROUP DIRECTOR, ARAELIO GUERRA, STARTED PLAYING HIS INSTRUMENT AT THE AGE OF 8 YEARS OLD, MAINTAINING A FAMILY TRADITION. IN CUBA HE DIRECTED AND PERFORMED WITH "CUARTETO PUERTO PRINCIPE", "SEXTETO TURQUINO DE SANTIAGO DE CUBA", "SONERO DE CAMACHO", "TIPICO DE CUBA", "MANGUARE" AND SOME OTHERS NOT MENTIONED. UPON HIS ARRIVAL TO THE USA HE HAS PLAYED AND RECORDED WITH PERFORMERS LIKE ROBERTO TORRES, WILLY CHIRINO, HANSEL Y SU ORQUESTA CALLE OCHO, ISRAEL KANTOR, LA FANIA ALL STARS, AND DIFFERENT SHOWS IN CHANNEL 41(AMERICA TV). ARELIO IS VERY WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED FOR HIS GREAT KNOWLEDGE AND MAGISTRAL WAY OF PLAYING HIS INSTRUMENT, "EL TRES CUBANO".

BASS PLAYER, RAFAEL LOPEZ, STARTED PLAYING MUSIC AT 9 YEARS OLD, AND HAS PLAYED WITH MANY BANDS AROUND HIS NATIVE PROVINCE OF CAMAGUEY, IN CUBA. IN 1993, HE BECAME A MEMBER OF "MARAVILLA DE FLORIDA"ONE OF THE BEST ORQUESTRAS IN CUBA TODAY. RAFAEL SHOWS HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC WITH THE BABY BASS AND IN EVERY TONE EXPRESSES HIS PROFOUND KNOWLEDGE OF THIS EXOTIC INSTRUMENT.

GUITAR PLAYER, RAMON CAñA, STARTED VERY YOUNG AS PART OF A SEPTET "ECOSON". HE WAS ALSO PART OF A GRUOP CALLED "GUARAñICO, THEY WERE PART OF A TV SHOW, PLAYED IN CAFES, AND THEATERS. HE ALSO PLAYED WITH "LOS ARMONICOS", "LOS TRES CANCIONEROS", "LOS HIDALGOS". HE IS A GREAT PLAYER WITH PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE OF HIS INSTRUMENT.

PERCUSIONIST, HERIBERTO CAMACHO, USES HIS MAGIC FINGERS TO BRING OUT THE FEELINGS OF THE "BONGO" AND "CONGA". OUR PERCUSIONIST HAS ALSO PLAYED WITH MANY BANDS IN CUBA; "SALSA DE ESQUINA", "NG LA BANDA", ETC. ONCE HERE IN THE USA, CAMACHO PLAYED WITH "ORQUESTA SENSACION DE MIAMI", "EDDIE SANTIAGO", "EL TRABUCO DE ISRAEL KANTOR".

THE LEAD VOCALS FOR THE BAND BELONG TO GILBERTO GONZALES AND ELAINE HERNANDEZ, TWO ACCOMPLISHED SINGERS IN THEIR OWN RIGHTS. BOTH HAVE GREAT TALENT AND HAVE MASTERED GENRES OF THE CUBAN MUSIC.

GILBERTO STARTED SINGING AT AN EARLY AGE. HE SANG IN "RUMBA HABANA", "IYAKAREY", "CUBA 95" AND OTHERS. IN 1993, GILBERTO LEFT CUBA AND HEADED TO LIMA, PERU WHERE HE AND ARAELIO, TRESERO, MET AND PERFORMED TOGETHER FOR 3 YEARS, PROCLAIMING A VERY PRESTIGIOUS PLACE FOR THE "SON CUBANO". DURING THE TIME HE RESIDED IN PERU GILBERTO ALSO SHARED THE STAGE WITH "ISAAC DELGADO"AT A SALSA FESTIVAL. POWERFULL, YET VERY SENSITIVE BEST DESCRIBES GILBERTO'S CRAFT, HE IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE GREATEST SONERO IN ALL MIAMI. IMPROVISATION AT ITS BEST, AND SOULFULL EXPRESSIONS NOT JET EXPERIENCED BY ANY ONE IN MIAMI.

ELAINE, IS THE MOST RECENT ADDITION TO THE GROUP. THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE VERSATILITY OF THIS ARTIST. COMING FROM A FAMILY OF MUSICIANS, ELAINE ALSO STARTED SINGING AT AN EARLY AGE, BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL 1996 THAT SHE WAS FIRST DISCOVERED BY CURTIS WOMACK FROM THE BOBBY WOMACK'S FAMILY SINGING AT A JAZZ FESTIVAL. FROM THERE SHE WENT ON TO SING WITH GROUPS BASED IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA, BAY AREA,"BLUE HARMONY", "CURTIS WOMACK JAZZ ENSEMBLE", "SON Y CLAVE". IN 2000, CREATED HER OWN BAND "ELAINE Y SU CUBANEY" AND WAS PRODUCED BY ALBERT TORRES PRODUCCION IN LOS ANGELES. SHE RECENTLY PARTICIPATED IN THE "FESTIVAL DE LA CANCION LATINO AMERICANA INTERNACIONAL" IN SAN FRANCISCO WHERE SHE GOT FIRST PLACE IN THE SONGWRITERS' GATEGORY WITH HER OWN ORIGINAL SONG "HOMENAJE A CELIA" SOON TO BE OUT, AND BEST VOCALS/INTERPRETATION WITH ANOTHER ORIGINAL SONG "QUE PORQUE TE AMO" UNDER THE POP/RANCHERA CATEGORY.

"SON DE MI TIERRA" ITS THE BEST SECRET JET TO BE DISCOVER NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY. OUR MUSIC IS ENTYCING, IS ALIVE, IT INVITES PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND ALL BACKGROUNDS TO FEEL THE RYTHM. OUR MUSIC HAS NO BOUNDARIES, AND NO LANGUAGE BARRIERS. WE ARE INFLUENCED BY OUR ANCESTORS; THE PIONEERS OF THE "SON"CUBANO. WE FEED FROM EACH OTHERS UNDYING DESIRE TO EXPRESS OURSELVES THROUGH OUR MUSIC.

Esa gente que anda por ahi vive comentando que tocan salsa y son y yo los estoy dejando.
Todavia me queda voz para expresar lo que siento y a mi lo que me interesa es el Son Cubano y no lo que estan comentando

Echa palla no quiero cuento conmigo (repite)
