Aramis Galindo and his thirteen piece Orchestra present not just any old Cuban Son. He is modern, smooth and elegant, with his view fixed on Cuba’s musical history. With such energy and »Candela« (Fire) it is not possible to sit still for too long! Even though Aramis Galindo always felt he was a singer, he started his career as a baseball professional and then changed over to music.
For 5 years he was lead singer with the successful Adalberto Alvarez y su Son. On this album he presents mostly songs that are written by him and his musicians. His own individual style can best be described as having its basis in Cuban Son, Rumba influences (the musical roots of his hometown Matanzas) and contemporary Timba.
This is put together with his own special energy and power and his elegant vocal performance. We are sure that the career of Aramis Galindo that began with Adalberto Alvarez y su Son will develop worldwide. With such a great voice and his own orchestra he is bound to make the hearts of all the fans of Latin American music beat faster.
We seldom get the chance to hear a voice that has so many multicultural influences; the black passion, mixed with the passion of Flamenco that amuses us with the rhythm of Cuban well being. On this CD one finds everywhere authentic Cuban enthusiasm. This is Aramis Galindo. (»¡que canta muy lindo!«) When he was working as a musician for several famous bands I had the honour to work with Aramis. Now this solo album is the definitive proof that he is a fantastic singer. José Luis Cortés »El Tosco« pntante con letras mayúsculas.
