Earshot Jazz Festival 2013 presented La Familia Valera Miranda Saturday night at Town Hall and they were fantastic and had a whole lot of people up and dancing to every song.

Father Félix Valera Miranda (guitar and vocals), wife Carmen (maracas and vocals) and sons Enrique “Kiki” (cuatro), Raúl (bass) and Ernesto (bongos) have virtually defined Cauto son, the mid-tempo form of the Cuban son style, marked by its easy-going, contagious swing. In this special Seattle residency, this family, plus Wilfredo Fuentes (congas) and Antonio Rodón (clave and vocals), from Santiago de Cuba, shares in a masterclass and performs.
