Tradicional Cubano is a combination of Flute, Double Bass, Guitar & Percussion, which brings together the most vibrant and iconic musical sounds from vintage Cuba. Inspired in the music from the 1920's and 30's, the group is perfect for small functions, charming and beautiful weddings, outreach projects in schools and hospitals, recitals or just what you need as relaxing background music for latin inspired evenings at clubs or bars!!
Jose’s Father, Javier Zalba (Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra, Irakere, Cubanismo) has also written specially for the band and performs with them regularly on their UK tours. They have performed in a wide range of venues across the UK including The Pumphouse, Aldeburgh Suffolk, The National Theatre, The Forge, The Cuban Moorgate, The Savoy, The Langham, St James’s Church Piccadilly, St Peter’s Notting Hill, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Cardiff, Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester and The Duke of Cumberland in Whitstable, to name but a few! Jose and Tradicional Cubano are much in demand and as well as their performing, they also currently run highly successful educational music projects at colleges such as the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Royal Northern College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire, Oxford Flute Summer School, Philippa Davies International Flute Summer School and The Scottish International Flute Summer School.
