Pellejo Seco is a Cuban Son Fusion band based out of San Francisco ’s Bay Area. Ivan Camblor is the tresero, composer and founder of Pellejo Seco. Ivan humbly considers Pellejo Seco a musical experiment, and says that he’s simply doing what he learned to do in Cuba’s streets, namely traditional Cuban Son. However, he does this within the cultural context of San Francisco. With their “Experimental Son Cubano”, they skillfully blend strands of various musical genres from blues, rock, jazz, flamenco to hip-hop, with the unmistakable sound of Cuban Son and the yearning melodies of the Cuban troubadour. Various critics have heralded Pellejo Seco as the next Buena Vista Social Club.
