Charanga is an ensemble that came out of Cuba, featuring the unique sound of the French flute and violins, guiro, congas, timbales, piano, bass, and vocals. Danzón evolved from European country dances, becoming Cuba’s own original dance music. From the Danzón, the Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, and Son was incorporated.
"Charangueo" is the only band in the Midwest that plays this traditional music from the famous ‘40s and ‘50s style that came from Cuba, and the ‘60s and ‘70s that is considered "New York" style. This ensemble plays a wide range of Afro-Cuban jazz styles like Mambo, Guajira, Guanguanco, Son-Montuno, and Cha Cha Cha.
