Orquesta La Moderna Tradición
One of the only orchestras of its kind outside of Cuba, Orquesta La Moderna Tradición dedicates itself primarily to danzón, Cuba's national dance. This romantic, elegant parlor dance, in which couples move in a close embrace, has shaped Cuban music's evolution as truly as the better-known son, son montuno, rumba and Afro-cuban religious genres.
Performing and preserving classic and folkloric styles, with danzón leading the way, this group honors these traditions with crisp modern arrangements of classic pieces and original compositions.
With an ALL-STAR band this will be a night to dance and sway:
with Felix Samuel, Michael Spiro, Remi Spiro, Miguelito Martinez, Steve Senft-Herrera, John Calloway, Anthony Blea and Tregar Otton.
"Orquesta La Moderna Tradición continues to produce some of the finest danzón-charanga dance material anywhere....Gorgeous."
Bruce Polin, descarga.com says of their latest CD, En Canto
"Records like this make the planet larger and more mysterious... Imagine a blend of Tito Puente and a tango, and you'll begin to get an idea of the power and beauty of this music"
