Founded in Havana in 1992, the septet Mi Son updates the tradtional son with modern twists. For example, in place of the solo trumpet that typically plays the melodies, Mi Son uses violin. The result is a unique sound that blends elements of son septet with charanga. Most of the members of Mi Son are young and while they respect tradition, you will hear a touch of Spanish rap thrown into the vocal improvisations of lead singer Lazaro de Jesus.
