La: Sonaron los ca This recording is a worthy representative of the Cuban Sonora groups. Such bands are trumpet led ensembles that arose from the stringed Cuban Son traditions, which several figures such as Arsenio Rodríguez, transformed forever. Herein you will find three veteran singers, two trumpets and a rare tasty paila led rhythm section, which is a miniature timbale drum with a similar function to bongos, within a production by one of the vocalists: José de Jesús Hernández Boza (Laíto, Jr.).

The group's touch is quite traditional without sounding dated which is somewhat rare within the short resurgence of old Cuban flavorings brought about by the popularity of the Buena Vista Social Club popularity. Estanislao Sureda Hernández himself, better known as “Laíto,” shined among these solid artists constantly reminding you that this was his Sonora and it certainly was!

Herein you can see the importance of experience, knowledge, simplicity, respect, brevity, and discernment within a given Latin musical context. How rare to find a contemporary quality recording featuring such an experienced aged singer, in rare form, within a traditional Cuban Sonora context! Most of the material, however, is not rare. Many will readily recognize, and enjoy the treatment of “Idilio,” “Yambú pa'gozar,” “Sonaron los cañonazos,” “Mañoño,” and “Cualquiera resbala y cae.”
