Supported by the UK’s top specialist Cuban DJs: Rich, Jim & Javier.

Elito Revé Y Su Charangon are a much-loved Cuban powerhouse of popular dance music. And have been for 49 years! Elito’s father, Elio Revé Matos, an outstanding figure in Cuban music, founded the original Revé y su Charangón in 1956, his son Elito taking over the band on the death of his father in 1997.
Many of Cuba’s musical luminaries that we know and love served apprenticeships in the original Revé orchestra. Amongst them Chucho Valdés who went on to form Irakere, and Juan Formell, who, along with Pupy, went on to form Los Van Van, two groups who were pivotal in laying the way for the wonderful Timba explosion of the nineties.
Under Elito’s leadership El Revé has grown from strength to strength, deservedly achieving it’s position as one of Cuba’s top bands, much loved by Cubans and Europeans alike, with a distinctive, exciting and highly popular sound. A sound which, for the most part, is built around Changüí, the thrillingly infectious predecessor of Son Montuno and Salsa that has its origins in Cuba’s Eastern provinces.
This driving rhythm is skillfully mixed with Afro-Cuban elements, and their own spicy contemporary Timba flavor. And has produced some mighty anthems, driving Cuban dancers delirious with joy over the years. I can promise you, you will have been on cloud nine dancing your socks off to some, if not all, of them: Agua Pa’ Yemaya; Mi Amiga Chi Chi; Esa Soy Yo; Mi Salsa Tiene Sandunga; El Jala Jala; No Me Da La Gana; El Nombrecito; ¿De Que Estamos Hablando?; 1999; Fresquecito ; Se Sigue Comentando; El Teléfono – the list goes on and on!
Make sure you are there at the Live Cuban Event of The Winter to enjoy this incredible band live for the first time in London. It will be a magical night.
