Why Is YeraSon Perfect For Your Party or Event?

Versatility is one of the group’s central characteristics.  YeraSon can easily adapt to any venue, audience or style of Latin music.  Here's how Trio and quartet formats are perfect for receptions, cocktails and small parties, while the  Charanga Orquesta is better suited to larger events such as weddings and concerts. Whatever your event, YeraSon can suggest the perfect entertainment to suit your needs. Two Violins, Flute,Vocals, Piano, Bass, and  Percussion , for example, lends the band a more traditional Charanga air, while use of  horns spreads the group’s sound for big-band Mambo numbers. Additionally, instruments like the accordion, recorder and 10-stringed Peruvian charango provide authentic timbres for merengue and Andean music.
YeraSon Orquesta Charanga is made up of vocals, two violins, piano, Bass, congas, timbales and flute which doubles on
saxophone.   One violin doubles on accordion and the other doubles on lead vocals as well as minor percussion (guiro and cowbell) The sound is reminiscent of the great Cuban charanga orchestras of the 1950's.  Horns (trumpet, trombone, additional saxophones) can also be added for a slightly edgier mambo sound.  The charanga is at once elegant and drivingly rhythmic, with a swing that is made for dancing but is equally a treat for wallflowers!  

Traditional Trio and Quartet: The YeraSon Trio consists of piano, violin, multi-percussion and vocals.  The
piano provides the bass and 'tumbao,' or rhythmic harmony.  The violin adds lyrical melodic lines and fiery solos, and the percussion - conga, bongoes, timbal, guiro and cowbell all played by a single musician - gives the trio a full and uniquely Cuban sound. The mandolin/tres is also used for an added traditional sound.  The trio is easily expanded to a quartet with the addition of a flute, trumpet or acoustic string bass.  These compact groups are perfectly suited for cocktail receptions, private parties and anywhere a big sound
is needed but accommodating a large group is impractical.  For example, the
YeraSon Trio can easily perform
during a wedding cocktail hour, then be joined later by the full band to play at the reception.    

Classical Cuban String Quartet: The YeraSon String Quartet is a slight departure from purely popular traditional music.   Fusing classical technique and arrangements with Cuban and classical (Western European) material, the String Quartet produces a distinctive sound well suited to quiet receptions, wedding ceremonies and concerts.  The format of this group is also versatile: two violins, Cuban tres guitar and cello make up the Cuban string quartet while violins and piano comprise a small classical trio perfect for wedding ceremonies.  For schools and universities, the YeraSon String Quartet also presents a mini lecture concert explaining the history and context of the program as well as a 'primer' on Cuban music and rhythms.
Any and all of these different formats can be combined for a single event depending on your need.  A wedding package, for instance, consists of Violin and Piano Duo  performing at the ceremony, followed by theYeraSon Trio  during the cocktail hour and the Charanga Orchestra for dancing during the reception.

Whatever your event, YeraSon can suggest the perfect entertainment to suit your needs!
