Cuban son heard at UM, April 7


ANN ARBOR: The University Musical Society (UMS) presents Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro de Cuba on Thursday, April 7, 2011, beginning at 8 p.m. in Ann Arbor’s Hill Auditorium (825 North University Avenue).


For more than 80 years, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro de Cuba has reigned supreme as the world’s foremost champion of Cuban son, the musical heartbeat of Cuba. With a rich history firmly rooted in the dance floor explosion of son that took place in the 1920s and ‘30s, Septeto Nacional has been hailed as the “inventors of salsa” (The New York Times) and “national treasures” (The Boston Globe).


In 2009, the group toured select cities in the United States for the first time in 76 years thanks to a special “cultural exchange” visa arranged with the State Department; on that tour and in subsequent performances, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro de Cuba has been met with overwhelming warmth and acclaim from critics and audiences alike.


“There’s no antiquarian dust on Septeto Nacional... Its Cuban son, and its rumbas and boleros are music of transparency, tensile strength, and phantom drive. Piñeiro’s lyrics are perennial: lamentations about lost love and celebrations of Cuba, dancing and the joys of rhythm.” (The New York Times)
