Burnside Album Details

Cana Son, Cana Son

Gripping vocals, shredding horn lines, and infectious rhythm are the beans and rice of Caña Son's freshman effort played with a very personal style that is clearly identified in Cuban roots. "My teacher is my ancestry" says Juanito Maribona, Caña Son lead vocalist and band leader. "You can't learn this on paper. It's in the veins, in the blood." Highlights of the disc are rock solid, swinging renditions of tunes by the inventors of Cuban Son, Guillermo Portabales, Ñico Saquito, Francisco Repilado and Celina Gonzalez. But, bottom line this is a great disc of roots DANCE music as played by the next generation of young soneros.
