With a fresh, rich voice and a tight all-Cuban acoustic band, Adonis Puentes is earning a place in the list of great soneros – bandleader/singers whose vocal improvisations are the hallmarks of a Cuban son. Although he now lives in Canada, Puentes comments, “I feel like a messenger of my roots and tradition. … My mission is to make you dance and enjoy my melodies and rhythms.” The multi-layered arrangements that will bring you to the dance floor include guitar, tres (six-string guitar), piano, bass, trumpet, and percussion. “… [A] world class band that delivers with great precision; witty, intelligent lyrics inspired by everyday life and by the greatest power of all: Love,” described the Latin Jazz Network.
