Primo Cubano Live at The Dance Hall!
Primo Cubano plays traditional Cuban dance music dating back to the turn of the 20th Century. "Son" is the most popular style to come out of Cuba and is the primary contributor to the blend of Latin styles today known as Salsa. It was first a music of the country people and eventually migrated to Havana, where it was urbanized and began to draw a wider
audience.

Guitarist Paul D'Alessio, a simple-living country man himself, came into contact with this
music on a trip to Cuba in 2004 with the Brunswick-Trinidad Sister City Association, a cooperative between Brunswick, ME and the city of Trinidad, Cuba. He began learning to play Son music on a guitar-like instrument native to Cuba called the tres and subsequently formed Primo Cubano, "Cuban Cousin".

Trumpeter Marc Chillemi has also spent time in Cuba and has played in various other Latin
groups.  He also plays percussion and sings on the choruses, or coros, to which the lead singer, or sonero responds with an improvised lyric.

Lenny Hatch has loved the congas since he first heard Mongo Santamaría play Watermelon, and he has been playing them in addition to the bongó and other percussion instruments for over 20 years now.


Keeping it all together is Duane Edwards on the bass fiddle. He is a graduate of the
University of Maine at Augusta and plays in various groups in the area.  As a jazz student, he took very quickly to the tumbao bass pattern that makes this music so danceable.
