Buena Vista Social Club is an ensemble of Cuban musicians established in 1996 to revive the
music of pre-revolutionary Cuba. The project was organized by World Circuit executive Nick
Gold, produced by American guitarist Ry Cooder and directed by Juan de Marcos González.
They named the group after the homonymous members’ club in the Buenavista quarter of
Havana, a popular music venue in the 1940s. To showcase the popular styles of the time, such as son, bolero and danzón, they recruited a dozen veteran musicians, many of whom had been retired for many years.
Al Son Del Iya has decided to take on such an incredible tribute! They’re a local salsa band
from Columbus, OH founded in 2007 by Peruvian percussionist Waltinho Casanova, a hard
hitting conguero and die-hard salsa fan. With culturally diverse musicians, Al Son Del Iya plays
year round in local businesses, private events, and festivals. You may recognize the band from
their recent performance at the 2017 Dayton Hispanic Heritage Festival.
The band’s name, Al Son Del Iya, goes back to the root of Salsa. Al Son Del Iya translates to the
beat of the Iya, an African drum brought to the Americas by the Yoruba people of Southwestern
Nigeria primarily used for entertainment and religious rituals. Salsa is a direct descendant of
those rhythms, born in Cuba then enriched by Latino immigrants in New York during the 60-
70’s. Today, Salsa unites us all with it’s upbeat and contagious groove.
Al Son Del Iya aims to provide an authentic Latin American “Salsa Gorda” or “Fat Salsa” music
experience, just like the sounds you would hear around any coastal town from Peru to Panama,
along with Cumbia and Merengue.
