The Cuban Legend
In 2001, Keko Virán travelled to Cuba to meet Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer and Cachaíto López – his idols from the legendary “Buena Vista Social Club” and to embrace the essence of the country and the people that inspired the rich, earthy roots of modern salsa music.
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 idea was to form a musical group to research and promote rhythmic Afro-Latin styles and have lots of fun with it along the way.’
As if channelling the very essence of Cuban street music, Keko fronts this energetic and talented musician’s group. Theirs is the only traditional Cuban Son band in Australia to be recognized by a Cuban Ambassador.
Kekoson’s members have toured Australia and abroad and have performed with World’s best. In 2012 Keko won “Australia’s Best Latin Band” singing with San Lázaro.
‘I love seeing everyone dancing and enjoying themselves just as people used to a century ago in Cuba.’– Keko–0424951161
