Septeto Nacional (National Septet) has played an important role in Cuba’s music for more than seven decades. Pioneers of Son, a rhythmic blend of African and Cuban music that evolved into Salsa, the Mambo, and Latin jazz, the group was the first Son band to incorporate trumpet as a lead instrument. The group first formed in 1927 and, despite disbanding in 1937 and 1940, has played consistently since 1959.

“Now more than eight decades after its founding, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro is a national treasure interpreting a timeless repertoire to the delight of audiences and dancers throughout the world.”
