Los Naranjos: Respeta mi tamb After more than 70 years, this group continues to engage the traditional Cuban Son with elegance, taste, fun, and respect. The most important points of origin and development of Cuban music lie around Oriente de Cuba, and Havana. Los Naranjos, from Cienfuegos, are a salient and rare point in between.

In this recording we find yet another group of elders that constitute a distinguished fragment of the lush history of Cuban regional groups. Voices that honor the tradition are well represented as the típico, or time-honored, feel of the guitar and the tres -a guitar-like instrument from Cuba, engulf you with clean, solid, honest, vibrations. The sole trumpeter plays what needs to be played, the way it needs to be played, with little effort, thus showing the type of musical wisdom that characterizes this group. The required Afro-Cuban rhythmic groundwork is laid by the capable work of the bongos and the small percussion.

The group's repertoire is as traditional as them, starting with “Nadie se salva de la rumba,” from the legendary Miguel Matamoros, and ending with “Amala pa' Changó” from Pablo Justiz, as well as the well known and historically significant “La jardinera.” If you like traditional Cuban Son, you will definitely love this recording.
