A touch of Cuba is coming to Crowland Abbey on Sunday (March 4) at 7.30pm as musicians Son Yambu provide an energetic performance.

They are the UK’s very own Buena Vista band, having played at Glastonbury, the Cork Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Bar in London and much more.

Many of the band members hail from Cuba itself and play an authentic, intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African rhythms - which gives the music a contemporary edge.

Yuriselys Moreno Soria provides vocals and percussion and hails from Santiago de Cuba. She has sung with some of the biggest names in the business.

Also on vocals and percussion is José Cascaret; on trumpet is Victor Hechavarria; Manuel Alejandro Tellez on trés, bass, backing vocals; Rene ‘Menique’ Savigne on congas and backing vocals and Oscar Vazquez Romero on bass and tres.

Completing the line up is Gabriel Temo on bongos; Reynaldo Crespo (guitar, bass, backing vocals); Antonio Danger Zapato (vocals and percussion) and Toby Herschmann on percussion (timbales).

Tickets are available online from Son Yambu in Concert at Crowland Abbey, from Bridge Hardware in Crowland or from the Abbey itself between 11am-3pm. Tickets are £10 in advance and £12.50 on the door.
