We begin our commemoration of the centennial of Arsenio Rodriguez by featuring some of the conjuntos of Cuba that were influenced by this major innovator of the Son. We will hear conjuntos like Nelo Sosa, Modelo, Sonora Matancera, Luis Santi, Matamoros, Ernesto Grenét, Kiko Mendive, Azúl de Chano Pozo, and Casino. There were many more, and of course, the Conjuntos helped give birth to the mambo and what we today call “Salsa.”

The second part of our Arsenio Rodriguez Tribute will air on the 27th of this month, and will feature entirely music and more of Arsenio himself. We will also have some early son to begin the show, danzón, cha-cha-cha, & more. Community Music Calendar at 9:30, and our half hour of modern music from Cuba from the last couple of years to conclude the show.
