Cesar Pedroso y Los Que Son, Son: "Pupy, el Buenagente" For the past three and half decades Cesar Pedroso has been a key figure on the Cuban music scene. As a member of the supergroup Los Van Van he was party to the creation of new styles such as songo and timba; as a songwriter he wrote many a hit for fellow musicians; and time and again he furthered the development of piano playing in the field of Latin music with his trailblazing innovations. At the beginning of the new century he turned his attention to pursuing his own personal career. Cesar Pedroso founded Los Que Son, Son and with the band he made a number of concert and album projects happen in a very short space of time. Now the ensemble has unmistakeably grown together to a real unit. In the ranks of Los Que Son, Son there are exceptionally gifted players. Although some are young in years, they have already proved their worth on many occasions in different situations. A few examples: vocalist Armando "Mandy" Cantero earned his merits with Charanga Forever, Los Chicos de la Salsa and Aché Junior; José "Pepito" Gómez, also a singer at the front mike, worked with Maravilla de Florida and Charanga Latina; and choir singer Carlos Manuel "Calunga" Camareno can be heard on a number of recordings by Klímax (for example "Oye Como Va" and "Concierto Eurotropical"). Finally, José Luis Quintana, nicknamed "Changuito", may quite rightly be classed as a living legend. A timbales specialist, he was with Los Van Van for more than twenty years and can notch up the invention of numerous songo rhythms to his credit. With this dream combo a work has been created in which all the people involved have really pulled together. The opening track “El Buenagente" (which could be translated as "the good guy") was part of Los Van Van’s repertoire for a long time; today this early composition by Cesar Pedroso has become his personal theme tune. The current version creates an infectious, feel-good party mood. "Disco Azucar", which follows, really gets us going with dance rhythms by the percussion section and a hot-blooded question-and-answer duel between the lead singer and the choir. And tracks like "Los Tres Gordes" and "Ay Lola" really get dance-lovers moving with their Latin beat. The album "Pupy, el Buenagente" is the newest milestone in a musical career rich in high points. These began in Cesar’s teenage years. Born in 1946, at age fourteen he attended courses at the "Amalia Roldan" conservatory in Havana. Very soon after, in his student days, this young talent played regularly in nightclubs and bars. He was then enlisted by the orchestras Fascinación, Sensación and Conjunto Chapotin, before "Pupy" (his nickname) joined the famous Orquesta Revé in 1966. There he met Juan Formell, with whom he founded Los Van Van in 1969. This group very quickly developed its own special direction. It pioneered the introduction of songo style (a mixture of Cuban and western elements), accompanied stars like Harry Belafonte, produced a multitude of successful albums and hit classics, and never disappointed its fans, always providing them with good feelings and party sounds. In the course of his long career, Cesar Pedroso has occasionally pursued secondary projects such as the album "Lo mejor de Cesar Pedroso" (with Angel Bonne, Raul Planas, Mario Rivera and others) under his own name, but it was not until the summer of 2001, after he left Los Van Van, that he started concentrating fully on productions under his own management. Since then he has released a number of albums with Los Que Son, Son, all of which have received rave reviews and a warm reception from critics and fans of Latin American sound. On "De La Timba A Pogolotti", "Timba: The New Generation Of Latin Music" and "Qué Cosas Tiene La Vida", Pedroso fused traditional elements from son and salsa with modern additions from rock, jazz, funk etc. to create a fiery timba sound. The listeners of the new album "Pupy, El Buenagente" can look forward to it. In 2004 Cesar Pedroso y Los Que Son, Son gave their first European tour. More tours of the "old world" are planned. Also, in early 2005 cinema-goers will be able to enjoy Pupy live as bandleader of the formation in Wim Wenders’ movie "Música Cubana - The Sons Of Cuba". That’s really something for Latin music fans to look forward to.
