The legendary Sonora La Calle (Sound of The Street) are one of Santiago de Cuba’s finest son & salsa bands. Under the direction of maestro Rubert ‘Chivo’ Orue Lopez (tres guitar) they have spent the last 25 years sharing their infectious Cuban rhythms with sell out audiences all over the world. Most recently they provided the pulsating backbone for the hit show Havana Rumba bringing the authentic charm of their magically musical island to London’s South Bank.

They first came to international critical acclaim in the late 90’s when their “Viva Cuba” tour attracted five star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival. This led to regular appearances in renowned venues and music festivals across the globe. They also spent three years as the original band in the unforgettable show Lady Salsa which enjoyed residencies in London’s West End and went on to tour around Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
