Cuba Contemporánea: The Son in Cuba Today
The Son is still the unofficial national dance and forms the basis of any impromptu fiesta. It did not leave the island with the exile community as many would have us believe. Cuban dance music maintains one foot in tradition and the other in a never-ending quest for reinvention, the Son being the most important element in that evolution.
