About the event
🌺 KEKOSON @ BAR OUSSOU!! 🌺
Cuban Son masters: Kekoson & The Cuban Sounds brings you a Cuban Fiesta in the heart of Melbourne in Australia; their music sets any dance floor on fire and gives the punters a memorable musical occasion to remember! 💃
In 2001, Keko Virán travelled to Cuba to meet Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer and Cachaíto López – his idols from the legendary “Buena Vista Social Club” and to embrace the essence of the country and the people that inspired the rich, earthy roots of modern salsa music. 🙏
The trip inspired the formation of Australia’s premier Latin band, with a nod to the Buena Vista through its strong Cuban Son foundations. ‘The idea was to form a musical group to research and promote rhythmic Afro-Latin styles and have lots of fun with it along the way.’ 🥗
As if channeling the very essence of Cuban street music, Keko fronts this energetic and talented musician’s group. Theirs is the only traditional Cuban Son band to be recognized by a Cuban Ambassador in Australia. 💐
Kekoson’s members have toured Australia and abroad and have performed with World’s best. In 2012 Keko won “Australia’s Best Latin Band” singing with San Lázaro. 🌏
‘I love seeing everyone dancing and enjoying themselves just as people used to a century ago in Cuba.’ – Keko
