Album Notes
Since forming in 2001, Palenque has energized audiences with an uplifting style of Cuban music called Son Montuno, made popular by artists such as the Buena Vista Social Club and Compay Segundo. Palenque refers to the mountain communities in Cuba formed by runaway slaves during the Spanish colonial era. Palenques were symbols of freedom, strength and resistance, as well as bastions of culture, dance and musical expression.

The band is led by Germán Donatien, a graduate of the National School of Music in Cuba and former member of Cuba's National Opera. Soy Montuno, the group's debut CD, features Germán's lyrical original compositions and distinctive voice. The band also pays tribute to the traditional music of great Cuban artists such as Ibrahim Ferrer, Celia Cruz, and Eliades Ochoa, pleasing dancing crowds at their sizzling live shows. The blend of enticing melodies, a warm family vibe, and irresistible Afro-Cuban rhythms raises spirits and inspires audiences to move their feet.

We just say them at a show...and I highly recommend their music!


even if you don't think you can dance
Even if you don't think you can dance, Palenque will help you find a groove within yourself you didn't know existed! High energy, wonderful musicianship, an excellent flautist and the rich vocals of the group's leader and author all in all combine in a fusion music you can't help but move to. From downtown Oakland to Berkeley's historical La Pena and beyond, a mystical and sensual sound that makes one happy to be alive! Buy it- definitely a worthwhile investment. Can't wait to see them again.

Palenque - Soy Montuno is a great CD
I bought Palenque - Soy Montuno for a friend who likes Afro-Cuban music because I loved it. The friend was equally enthusiastic about it. This CD is highly recommended for those who like this music genre.
