Album Notes
Although I began my artistic career at a late age, I was always, since I was young, surrounded by musicians and dancers from the 1940’s and 1950’s. Growing up in this environment of traditional music, these people had a great influence on me and inspired me to create this album.  Listening to my relatives, gave me a solid base in son cubano. Also, absorbing their knowledge of rumba, yambu, cha cha cha, chaonda and other Caribbean rhythms lead me to create something with a new, more modern sound while maintaining many elements of traditional Cuban music.
The uniqueness of this album lies in that each song is in a different rhythm derived from a mix of different influences.  It consists of a mix of my own songs, songs written by my uncle and other composers all of which are danceable for both old and new generations.
This production is the result of a collaboration with my musical family which includes musicians from the ages of 76 to 87 years old:  my uncle, Chiquitico Sotomayor, my aunt, La China, and Mamby  as well as my band Grupo Irek all of whom contributed to forming my musical style.  In it, you’ll hear both danceable and romantic songs infused with my Cuban background and with a touch of New York flavor which has been my home for many years.
