Son del Ecuador

IndiGoBoom - 2012

Founded in 2004 in Oslo, Norway, by the Ecuadorian percussionist, composer and arranger Tito Guevara, Sonora Cimarrón debuted with Son Del Ecuador, a recording featuring ten top-quality acoustic numbers together with the Ecuadorian vocalist Carlos "El Negro” "Paz as a guest artist.

From the orchestral format we can see that Sonora Cimarrón is not a conventional salsa orchestra: Instead of piano, the line-up includes as well as a horn-section with trombones and saxophone. This gives recording a special character.
