Son De Madre

salsa, son and more

A band formed by some of the best  musicians in New York playing Latin music, Son de Madre mixes Latin traditions (Cuba, Puerto Rico, Caribbean) with a modern touch and an international flavor, creating a exciting sound that invites feet to dance. The members, who come from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Argentina, the U.S., Israel and Italy, perform son, salsa, timba, cha cha, bolero, funk, ballads, descargas.  “We try to mix all of our birth places into one sound.”  They’ve performed in all the major clubs in the area, including SOB’s, Flamingo, Latin Quarter, La Belle Epoque, Nell’s, Village Underground, and recently performed at the NJPAC Festival in Newark.

Son De Madre and its members have performed and/or recorded with artists like Celia Cruz, Paquito D’Rivera, Victor Manuel, India, Albita Rodriguez, El Puma, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, and more.  They have performed several times on the two largest Spanish television channels, Univision and Telemundo.  Their first recording, “Rumberos,” was well received by critics and crowds all over the world. Two songs from the CD were chosen to represent Latin bands from New York and on World Music Network’s (UK) compilation from Latin bands worldwide.  The band’s second recording is on its way.

The full band consists of 12 musicians, but Son De Madre also works in smaller formations, from trio and up.
