Contemporary Cuban timba and salsa
Multi-instrumentalist Wilver Pedrozo leads this powerhouse ensemble that has been called the Los Van Van of Toronto. Charangón del Norte is a uniquely Cuban fusion, incorporating jazz, Latin funk and world music elements with variations on classic Cuban forms such as charanga, changui and pilon.
The original compositions and ambitious arrangements for the 16-piece orchestra draw on the group’s distinctive instrumentation that boasts a triple trombone section, two violins, baritone sax and flute. The result is a contemporary sound that reflects Pedrozo’s upbringing in south eastern Cuba where diverse influences from Colombia, Mexico and Jamaica are part of the everyday musical fabric.
