The Legend

In 2001, Keko Virán’s trip to Cuba to meet with music legends Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer and Cachaíto López – from the “Buena Vista Social Club.” The trip inspired the formation of Australia’s premier Latin band, with a nod to the Buena Vista through its strong Cuban Son foundations. 

The trip embraced the essence of Cuba and its people, influencing the creation of a musical group to research, promote rhythmic Afro-Latin styles with strong Cuban Son foundations.

As if channeling the essence of Cuban street music. Keko leads the only Australian Traditional Cuban Son band culturally recognised by a Cuban Ambassador. 

Kekoson musicians have travelled both domestically and internationally, performing with some of the world’s most renowned latin musicians. In fact Keko himself won 2012 “Australia’s Best Latin Band” with San Lázaro.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to witness the magic of Kekoson’s music.

'Keko Viran's passion and dedication is a testament to the authenticity of his work as a Cuban Sonero in Australia. His magnificent art form, in my opinion, his a purists reflection of our beloved Cuban son.
I recommend Kekoson for your next event."
" Without any doubt, Kekoson is the sound of Cuban Tradition in Australia. They make everyone sing and dance with measure and cadence, transporting them to Cubas yesterdays and todays Music.
Kekoson is too much Kekoson."
