Description
Mixing originals with gems from the son tradition of the 1920's, these Havana natives remain hip, fresh, and vibrant.

"Sierra started out in the early 1970s as a group of engineering students wanting to surf the then-fashionable Brazilian wave, but were persuaded to play son instead, and became a hit. Five of the original members remain, and with guaracha son, son montunoa, and some lovely changui riffs the basic sound is the same. But the lyrics, by some very young musicians, reflect a move forward from the old Cuban clichés. The gerontocracy has departed, but son lives splendidly on."—The Independent

"Whether you understand Spanish or not, you cannot help but be moved by the sheer exuberance of the band, from the group vocals and jamming of the instrumentalists on 'No Me Guardes Rencor,' or the soaring trumpet on the song of repentance, 'Perdona Mi Tradicion.' Fans should take notice of 'Pa'l Monte'—a classic rendition of this hot son montuno with tres and the horns, the descarga cha-cha 'A Una Mujer,' and the tumbao changui 'Juan Andres' burning with dance fever. The band is also capable of a romantic croon, hip-swinging jazz-dance tunes, or even a bolero."—All Music Guide
