Son cubano is one of the most popular musical styles in Cuba and Kiki Valera is one of its foremost exponents. Over the last century this style of traditional Cuban music contributed to many other genres including jazz, cha cha cha, mambo, salsa, songo and timba. Cuban son is the music that made the Buena Vista Social Club worldwide stars in the late 1990s but Kiki Valera comes from a family of musicians whose involvement with Cuban son pre-dates the Buena Vista Social Club by decades.

Kiki Valera is the oldest son of the famous La Familia Valera Miranda septet, a multi-generational traditional music group from Santiago de Cuba. Since the 19th century, La Familia Valera Miranda has played a significant role in Cuban culture by collecting and preserving the deep-rooted traditions of the legendary Sierra Maestra mountain region. Their debut album, released in 1982, helped initiate the explosion of interest in traditional Cuban music.

Kiki, like most of his family, is a virtuoso. A multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, sound engineer and producer, hes best known as one of the worlds greatest players of the Cuban cuatro, a mid-size guitar with 8 strings grouped in sets of 2.

Kiki picked up the Cuban tres under the guidance of his father Felix when he was a child. He later attended one of the most prestigious music schools in Cuba & by the mid-90s was busy recording and touring the world with his family.

Kiki continues to direct, compose, arrange and perform internationally. He also performs and teaches in Seattle, Washington where he contributes to the vibrant music scene in the Pacific Northwest. This current project features several other internationally acclaimed recording artists including Coco Freeman (former lead singer of Adalberto Alvarez y Su Son and NG La Banda) and Carlos Cascante (two time Grammy winning vocalist of Spanish Harlem Orchestra).
