Description

A towering artistic figure in his homeland, Juan de Marcos González (formerly tres player for Sierra Maestra) is a man on a mission—to display to the world the wealth, diversity, and vitality of Cuban music. His All Stars’ 1997 album, A Toda Cuba Le Gusta, was the first to be recorded during the now-legendary Buena Vista Social Club sessions. Today, concerts with the orchestra celebrate the classic montuno sound with a rich mix of all styles of Cuban music, including timba, guajira, and Afro-Cuban jazz.
