I am a native Floridian and have also resided in Louisiana and New York. I have been traveling to Cuba for over ten years, and living there for the pastinvolved in the Cuban jazz and traditional music scene and worked with Cuban artists in the United States. One of those groups was the Septeto Ignacio Pineiro which is credited with being the Cuban group that created what eventually became known as Son. Cuba has some of the most talented musicians in the world, and Cuban rhythms have contributed to the development of musical genres around theworld.
