This video excerpt from “Puro Son en Concierto,” at La Casa la Trova in Santiago de Cuba, has been posted with permission by La Familia Valera Miranda. “La Familia” is one of the best and most authentic bands of traditional Cuban music in Cuba. The city of Santiago itself is alive with the performing and visual arts, plus it is the most Caribbean (and possibly the most traditionally Cuban) of all the cities in Cuba. Santiago is the cradle of traditional son music and La Familia Valera Miranda plays to full house wherever they perform. So, it’s always advisable to go early if you want to find a place to sit — or dance.
