Gira del ¨Grupo Compay Segundo¨
110 Aniversario del Natalicio de CompaySegundo

Este año el 18 de noviembre se conmemora el 110 Aniversario del Natalicio de Maximo Francisco Repilado "Compay Segundo"

Teniendo en cuenta esta importante conmemoración, es que La Casa Compay Segundo y BIP, se han unido para celebrar el natalicio de este gran exponente de Cultura Cubana que fue Compay Segundo.

The return to Europe of the Grupo Compay Segundo, the legend of Chan Chan.
As a true master of words and music, Compay Segundo has become a legend in Cuba and has been very popular everywhere in the world. With his cigar and his panama on his head, he mastered the armonico like nobody else. (A seven strings guitar he created)
After he passed away in July 2003, his son, Salvador Repilado, who was also his contradouble bass player, became director of his orchestra. The Grupo Compay Segundo was born. He also took part with his father and Hugo Garzon to the Buena Vista Social Club project. And their song Chan Chan is a major piece of this work.

As official ambassadors of the Cuban music around the world, the Grupo Compay Segundo proudly carries the identity of the "SON" and the traditional Cuban music.

From now on, the band does not stop to go all over the world keeping captivating every kind of audience and has also been featured with great artists such as: Omara Portuondo, Eliades Ochoa, Charles Aznavour, Teresa Garcia Caturla, Isaac Delgado, Lou Bega...
" Macusa ", Saboroso ", " Anita ", " las Flores de la Vida ", as well as the legendary anthem " Chan Chan ", emblematic song written by Compay and played by every band of the genre around the world; all these songs that the nine musicians from the Grupo Compay Segundo, play for us on stage as a real cheerful gift.
This is a show that every Cuban SON aficionados cannot miss!
