A Primo Cubano concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, at the Chocolate Church Arts Center, 804 Washington St. in Bath.

They plays traditional Cuban dance music called Son dating back to the turn of the  20th Century.

The band was formed in 2007 by founder, Paul D’Alessio after an inspiring artist exchange trip to Trinidad De Cuba run by Brunswick/Trinidad Sister City Association first brought him into contact with the Son music and the local Cuban musicians who still play it.

Son is the most popular style to come out of Cuba and is the primary contributor to the blend of Latin styles today known as Salsa.

Primo Cubano consists of Paul D’Alessio on Tres Cubano and vocals, Marc Chillemi on Trumpet, percussion and vocals, Lenny Hatch on Congas, Bongo and Bell, Duane Edwards on Upright Bass, and Eric Winter on Timbales, percussion and vocals.
