After a great day of riding the Methow trails, unclip and unwind on Saturday, October 3 with the Super Sones at the Winthrop Barn. Doors open at 6:30 for food and drink, and the family friendly concert will begin at 7pm with a local opener. The Super Sones will begin at 8.
SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban
countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and
harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet
improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like
SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and celebrate.
SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and
original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha,
and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest
composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac
Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own
arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The
group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.
