De Cuba Son on the 4th Saturday of the even months Gypsy house Tapas Fremantle 2018
Born in Havana, Arvis grew up listening to the sounds of many iconic bands such as Irakere and Buena Vista Social Club, plus all the Rumba played around his Neighbourhood in Havana City. Moving to Perth he got together with talented local musicians who helped him shape the unique sound of De Cuba Son, which is a mixture of contemporary and traditional Cuban music. Glenn Rogers has played various forms of Latin and Brazilian music and supported Buena Vista social club at the now dismantled ‘Perth Entertainment Center ‘. He has a masters degree in composition and Julius Rogers his son is currently studying jazz drumming at WAAPA. The groups love of Cuban music and its infectious dance rhythms instigated the formation of De Cuba son.
