Son & Son Montuno

Ann Reynolds & I had recently had the pleasure of meeting with Roberto Borrell to talk about certain aspects of Cuban son & son montuno which seem to cause some confusion.

Two of the topics we covered were:

1. Son montuno – What exactly does “son montuno” refer to? Is it a dance? A musical arrangement? Something else?

2. How is Cuban son danced in Cuba in the 21st century?

In order to avoid taking up too much space, the full text has been posted on the last page of the cubanfolkloricdance.com website:
