Flor de Caña , a septeto from Santa Cruz, plays high energy dance music, including Cuban Son, Colombian Cumbia and various other Caribbean styles. They blend obscure with the known, old time with the new, keeping true to the roots while creating their own sound. The impressive rhythm section, comprised of upright bass, guitar, cuban tres, button accordion, congas, bongo, timbales, maracas, guiro and bell is sure to get you moving. Add to that mix a solo trumpet, lead vocal, strong coro section and you have a sound that will inspire all audiences who want to see and experience vibrant music. Candela!
