Bio Yrving Yrving Yeras- Violinist, Singer, Bandleader


Grammy Winning Violinist Yrving Yeras was born in 1973 in Santa Clara, Cuba. By the age of 14, he became the youngest member in the history of the Santa Clara Symphonic Orchestra in which he rose to earn principal chair. While performing with the symphony for over eight years, Yrving created his own trio, Alma Latina which toured throughout Cuba and was repeatedly invited to perform in Holland, Germany, Belgium, Costa Rica, Panama,and Guatemala as Ambassadors of Traditional Cuban Music

In 1999, Yrving came to the United States bringing with him the great spirit and traditions of Cuban music. He has been a featured soloist in Concerts at Lincoln Center, Town Hall New York, The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and NYU's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, can be heard in numerous recordings, including the film soundtracks of Woody Allen’s Cafe Society and Midnight in Paris, as well as appearing on screen in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and Cafe Society.

In 2001, passionate to realize his artistic vision of blending his deeply rooted Cuban musical heritage with the thrilling energy of his new home “New York City”, Yrving created YeraSon Orquesta Charanga. Highly acclaimed from its very beginnings in 2001, YeraSon Orquesta Charanga has proudly held weekly shows in Manhattan while the YeraSon Trio performs several times a week in and around New York. Their great dedication to their numerous weekly shows has allowed them to brew very distinctive energy infused performances that keep lingering in the minds of spectators well after the shows have finished.
