Event Details

Includes Cuban Salsa dance lesson at 8:30 pm.

Featuring the acclaimed singer Sulkary Valverde, Berkeley-based Cuban band Pellejo Seco fills its shows with music that brings audiences closer to the cultures that the music springs from. The group’s name can be translated as “rawhide,” which for Cuban émigré and band founder Ivan Camblor describes the dry and leathered skin of a campesino or farmer. While Pellejo Seco’s roots are in traditional Cuban music, reflecting the mostly acoustic son tradition popularized by Buena Vista Social Club, the band updates the sound in original compositions by Camblor that mix rock, Latin pop, Brazilian, flamenco, Afro-Cuban, and jazz. Camblor plays the tres, the six-string Cuban guitar that is used in traditional Cuban son and other music. He is joined by lead vocalist Valverde, backing singer Yanill Nario, trumpeter Mario Silva, bassist Antonio Cortada, and Carlos Medrano and Gerardo Borras on percussion; all but Silva are natives of Cuba.
