Septeto Habanero celebrates 100 years of Son



Havana, Dec 4.- Cuban culture registered a milestone when at the dawn of 1920 a group of musicians conceived in a place on Lealtad Street, between Zanja and Dragones, the idea of forming a sextet to interpret  Son.

Such was the success of the group, that despite the racial and class prejudices of the time, the most important halls of the capital claimed its presence, with which the Septeto Habanero became the first sones group to become professional in Cuba.

Thanks to this work, 100 years after its founding, the Septeto Habanero delights dancers with contemporaneity and fidelity to the tradition of hits such as «El orgullo de los soneros», «Revive la ilusión»,« Eres mimosa», «Desde el día en que te vi» and «Alerta a los bailadores», among others.
