YeraSon Orquesta Charanga electrifies old-school Cuban music with a distinctly modern New York twist. This Cuban charanga orchestra interprets authentic Cuban Son, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Bolero and Merengue with inimitable drive and swing. The bands unique sound is at once elegant and energetic with a contagious rhythm that attracts dancing and listening crowds alike. YeraSon is a treat for both the ears and the feet!
Versatility is one of the group's central characteristics. From 2 to 15 performers, YeraSon can easily adapt to any venue, audience, or budget. Duo, Trio and Quartet formats are perfect for receptions and parties, while Charanga Orchestra or Mambo Big Band formats are better suited to larger events such as weddings and concerts. Our full brass section, and dancers could add a special touch for larger events. Whatever your event, YeraSon can suggest the perfect entertainment to suit your needs.
Our instrumentation includes Vocals, two Violins, Flute, Saxophone, Bass, Percussion, Piano, Cuban Tres, Accordion, Trumpets, Trombones, and Dancers.
