PELLEJO SECO Premier Latin Wedding and Event Band of the San Francisco Bay Area .
Founded in the East Bay in 2004 by Ivan Camblor, Various critics have heralded Pellejo Seco as the next Buena Vista Social Club,They will be performing several tracks from their most recent recording “Despierta”, featuring Grammy nominated artist Chuchito Valdez. This eclectic group has its roots in Traditional Cuban music and performs only original compositions The group produces a creative sound which combines the exquisite, popular and fantastic. In its evolutionary process, Pellejo Seco has caught its own distinct flavor which intertwines progressive Fusion Rock, Latin pop, Brazilian, Flamenco, Afro-Cuban and Jazz.

Ivan Camblor named the band, Pellejo Seco, and interprets it to mean “Raw Hide.” For Ivan the name has many meanings, one of which is to describe the dry and leathered skin of a “campesino” or farmer.

“Enganchate,” is the first CD for Pellejo Seco. The title can be loosely translated to mean “Grab on.” As you listen to this album, you will definitely want to grab onto the exciting rollercoaster of musical themes and genres which winds you through a world full of complex energetic dance rhythms and beautiful love ballads.

All the music on this album is composed by Ivan Camblor Allende. Ivan is a new composer from Havana, Cuba. In Cuba, Ivan played his Tres (a Cuban guitar) with many traditional Cuban bands, many of which performed his songs. Other accomplishments for Ivan include a collaboration with Edesio Alejandro, the most prominent Cuban Soundtrack artist today, on two scores for the film, ”Hacerse el Sueco.” Ivan moved to
the United States in November 2004 to be with his wife, Deborah Simon-Weisberg, who is also featured on the CD singing “Calma.”

Friendly, charming, talented, what else would you expect from a Cuban Quintet! Even one of the neighbors walked by the back of the venue with a sign requesting "Mas, Mas,Mas!" and asking for their card. They adapted to the venue easily and filled the event with wonderful music. One of our guest who left Cuba in 1958, was brought to tears by the end of the second set. He told me this was the best day of his life. Every guest had some superlative to say about the group. The musicians and the female vocalist were just top notch. If you want an memorable event for Latinos, Mixed group, or anyone who loves music, hire these guys!

Probably the best Cuban band on the West Coast. I would highly recommend them for any gig and especially for people who appreciate the Afro Cuban rhythms. I plan to work with Pellejo Seco again in the future. Our crowd filled the dance floor for the entire night.
