Cortadito, known as the Buena Vista Social Club of Miami, is a traditional music group which focuses on performing the music of early 20th century Cuba. From Son Montuno, Guaracha, Boleros, Nengon, and Bolero Son, this dynamic ensemble brings you back to a time when Trio Matamoros or Ignacio Piniero ruled the airwaves - an era when popular music was Cuban Music and Son Montuno was influencing the world over. Led by musicians Jose Elias and Julio Cesar Rodriguez Delet, the group has performed several times with Eliades Ochoa, an original member of world-famous Buena Vista Social Club.
