Pupy y los que Son Son is a renown orchestra of popular Cuban dance music; created and directed by pianist and composer César Pedroso and this District Timba selection La Candela. When Pupi y Los Que Son Son debuted in 2001; Havana’s stages marked a new era of Timba.  Pupy conceived his sound by merging several instrumental formats, incorporating trumpets, violins and more with a strictly melodic, free  improvisational style and vocals by the very best soneros.
