Soneros De Verdad - El Run Runde Los Soneros (CD)
Release Date: 12/07/10
Soneros de Verdad includes some of the most popular artists of the Cuban music scene.
The album, produced at the Abdala Studios in Havana, keeps the listener constantly delighted with up-to-date arrangements of old hits and new original compositions, with fiery Latin rhythms and passionate ballads. There is certainly no lack of catchy tunes; for example the opening track 'El run run de los Soneros' with its unforgettable refrain and its decidedly life-loving mood will instantly hold you spellbound. 'Amorosa Guajira', an ode to feminine magic, revives the sound of Cuba in the 50s and captures the listener with its ballad-style sing-along tunes. And finally the arrangement of the old hit 'Cachita' by Rafael HernÃ¡ndez settles straight down in the ear passages. Soneros de Verdad includes some of the most popular artists of the Cuban music scene. For instance the musical director Luis Frank (Compay Segundo), pianist Guillermo Rubal-caba, 85-year-old living legend Pio Leiva, trumpeters Yanko Pizaco (Buena Vista Social Club) and Daniel âEl Gordo' Ramos (Afro Cuban All Stars); and singer Teresa GarcÃa Caturla (known from her work with D'Aida, Ibrahim Ferrer and the Estrellas de AreÃto).
