Son


Notes

Son was essentially a marriage of syncopated African rhythms and percussion with trova's Spanish-derived melodies and string instruments. The music and its accompanying dance moves developed in eastern Cuba, particularly the Oriente province, around the beginning of the 20th century, and by the end of World War I, son had become quite popular in Havana despite its lower-class, multi-ethnic origins.
