With its vast musical inheritance, Cuba displays an amazing variety of genres and styles. And no other group on the island has been as universal and as consistently successful as the Septeto Nacional de Cuba. Considered by many the flagship of Cuban traditional music, the septet was founded in 1927 by Ignacio Piñeiro Martínez, "The Poet of Son." During its long life, the band has included many of the biggest names of Cuban music, such as Abelardo Barroso, Miguelito Valdés, Bienvenido Granda and Carlos Embale.
