Alma y Azucar with SuperSones Quinteto @ THE ROYAL ROOM

5000 Rainier Ave S - Columbia City - - 8:00pm | Doors at 7:30pm - $15 adv/dos

Alma y Azúcar masterfully integrates beloved Latin rhythmic styles–Cha Cha, Latin Jazz, Mexican boleros, Son and Salsa with more contemporary influences, resulting in “Latin music for everyone.” The band features the music of “La Reina de la Salsa”, Celia Cruz. With Alma Villegas at the front, the band also includes esteemed Seattle musicians Fred Hoadley (piano, tres, backup vocals), Steve Okimoto (bass), Ricardo Guity(percussion, backup vocals), Steve Motsovoy (trumpet, backup vocals), Roy Brown (trombone) and Lance Lu (shekere).

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.
