Cuba’s Septeto Santiaguero and Jose Alberto “El Canario” will perform next June 28 at the Lincoln Center in New York as part of the annual show Midsummer Night Swing to take plae from June 21 to July 9 in the Big Apple.

There they will perform tracks from the album No quiero llanto, Tributo a los compadres (Los Ca­narios Music/Egrem), Cubadisco 2015 Award winner and Latin Grammy Award winner in 2015 in the category of Best Album of Traditional Music.

The album has been previously presented in the Dominican Republic, Venezuela—where they will perform again with Eduardo Tiburon Morales—and in our country. It will continue to be presented in other countries of Latin America and Europe.

At this moment the Septeto Santiaguero is recording in Estudios Siboney, in Santiago de Cuba, a new album with EGREM, the oldest record company in the country. It will be titled Raiz (Root), a musical production that will homage the different figures they have been influenced in their work of more than 20 years, as said Fernando Dewar, director of Septeto.

It will be a varied record that will include danzon, son, trova, changui, sucu sucu, rumba in all its musical richness and it should be released September this year.

The members of the group have also been invited to participate in a new discographic production by Omara Portuondo.
