CUBAN SON MUSIC GOES ITALIA
LOS TRESONEROS (ITA-FIN) is a Rome-based trio that performs Cuban son music. The band was born in the fall of 2013, when Vili moved to Rome and met his soulmates: Valter Paiola and Raffaele Magno.
Valter and Raffaele have toured Europe and the United States for more than 30 years performing Cuban music with their Italian bands Serpiente Latina and Salsabor.
During its two years of existence Los Tresoneros has played more than 50 concerts in Rome and elsewhere in Italy (Senigallia, Pescasseroli, Nettuno, Ostia). In October 2015 the band made a tour in Finland, covering five cities.
The traditional Cuban son music has its origins in the beginning of the 20th century. It gained worldwide recognition with the success of the Buena Vista Social Club, a band whose compelling story was made famous by the documentary with the same name.
