El Son Montuno: 1940s and 50s Havana

Definitive innovations within the Son during this era paved the way for modern day Salsa and Timba - truly a "golden age" for Cuban dance music. Some of the genre's greatest and most enduring stars emerged during this period.

Co-presented with Yerba Buena Gardens Festival & Museum of the African Diaspora
