(Son Cubano is a style of music that combines Spanish guitar melodies with African percussion rhythms.)
Disclaimer: I am no music aficionado. Generally, I prefer quiet. It may be my age or it may be from years working in heavy construction where silence is rare.
However, on this trip I truly enjoyed the music. Personable, young Cuban musicians interacting with their audience, playing on old, inexpensive, Chinese-made guitars provided great memories.
This group, Son Villalba, played it all. From the high energy “Bailando” to the wonderfully light, almost haunting version of “Guantanamera”, to Hector’s guitar solo of John Lennon’s “Imagine” where we all tried to remember the words.
Magical moments in Trinidad de Cuba.

Note how this guitar is strung. Three sets of two strings produces a unique sound.
