Son Damas

Feminine orchestra of dancing popular music.

Born under the sign of musicality and rhythm, talented professionals, this group of Cuban young women, when concluding their musical studies, decided to create the orchestra Son Damas in 1992.

Since their very first presentations, they were astonishing successful due to their great technical and scenic mastery and to their high musical quality.

José Luis Cortés, Director of NG La Banda Orchestra, and one of the most talented Cuban musicians, is the author of some of the first themes interpreted by Son Damas that were musical hits in Cuba and abroad, among them, Se me va, se me va and 17 y 48.

A rich repertoire including classics of traditional music such as boleros, cha cha chá, rumba and salsa, shows their versatility. Compositions by their directress Dahlia Prada, have also become great hits among dancers.

Son Damas has performed in prestigious Cuban theaters and nig ht centers, like the "Casas de la Música" EGREM and the Cabaret Tropicana.

They were also invited to the tv program "Seven 7x Music", recorded at the Acropolis of Athens. That same year they performed in a circuit of Spanish salsotecas.

The second lustrum of the 90s was characterized by a wide international activity, with performances in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Austria, Mexico, Italy and Jamaica.
