Son Como Son

Son Como Son bills itself as Salsa Cuban Style. Founded in 1993 it is unquestionably one of Albuquerque’s longest-standing and most popular salsa ensembles, they play regularly to packed audiences comprising highly animated and dedicated, salseros at the NM Jazz Workshop’s Salsa Under the Stars Series; at The Cooperage; as well as at special concerts such as those at the Telluride Jazz Festival. They are directed by renowned trombonist, vocalist, percussionist, composer, and arranger César Bauvallet who moved from Havana, Cuba to Albuquerque in 1992. In addition to César Bauvallet, Son Como Son comprises some of Albuquerque’s most accomplished and busiest musicians. It's Paul Gonzales, trumpet, background vocals; Martin Carlucci, trumpet, background vocals; Jim Firkins, trombone, background vocals; Mary Wommack, piano, background vocals; Janet Harman, bass, background vocals; Victor Rodríguez, congas, lead vocals; Lester Rodríguez, vocals; and Tomás White, drums, timbales.
