Since 1994, the 11-piece charanga band Yerbabuena has brought the Northwest the genuine sounds of Cuban son, salsa, cha cha cha, guaranco, and danzon. Mixing a repertoire of originals and standards from such as Cachao, Orquesta Aragon, and The Buena Vista Social Club, the group features a violin section that gives their music a deeply authentic flavor.
No less an authority than Richard Egues, chief arranger and flutist for Orquesta Aragon for fifty years, has said: ?Seattle has no reason to envy New York because Seattle has a charanga, which is very unusual...a fine orquesta with excellent musicians.?
