Los quebecos del Son
Close your eyes and let yourself be carried by the feverish rhythms of Los Quebecos Del Son. As heirs of the Cuban tradition, the seven band members deliver an energized “son”, forerunner of the salsa. Bewitched by a trip to Cuba, the trumpeter Rachel Therrien decided to import the boisterous sounds of the island on to the icy lands of Quebec. Consisting of three Cuba-born musicians and four Quebec musicians, Los Quebecos Del Son is the result of this cultural crop.
In 2009, the band released their first EP of five tracks and then performs in several festivals. With this stage experiences, Los Quebecos Del Son continue to perfect it’s melodies, always with a view of building a bridge between Havana and Montreal. Since the arrival of the new singer, Jesus Cantero, the group states more than ever it’s personality and it’s infectious energy.
