The Cuban salsa legends play live.

Flyer

n October 1992, after building successful musical careers in Cuba and recording and traveling across the globe, Daniel and César Bauvallet migrated from Havana to Albuquerque, NM. Finding a thriving salsa scene in their new home, the Bauvallet brothers jumped right in, playing with a variety of bands in their first few months on the scene. Almost immediately, their musical sensibilities began to influence the Latin music soundscape.

In the spring of 1993, César formed his own band, naming it Son Como Son (“They Are as They Are”), and coining the phrase “Salsa Cuban Style.” His vision was to organize an ensemble of skilled musicians, eager to learn a distinctive form of salsa, who would play his original compositions and arrangements that were stylistically Cuban. The players, from a variety of musical backgrounds and levels of experience, were all devoted to advancing musically and working together; virtually all the current members of Son Como Son have been with the band for at least 24 years.
