Berklee Performance Center

Los Hermanos Arango is an ensemble from Guanabacoa, Cuba where Yoruba, Abakua and other West African traditions are preserved in their most authentic form in the Americas. The Arangos are the only Cuban band to use completely unaltered Afrocuban ritual voice/hand drumming as the basis for a modern repertoire that integrates electric bass, keyboards, brass/winds (no drumset). Leaders, Feliciano and Eugenio Arango are the top-call percussionist/bassist in Cuba and toured with Chucho Valdes, Afrocuban All-Stars, N.G. La Banda, Pablo Milanes, Emiliano Salvador. 

Los Hermanos Arango is led by Feliciano Arango, who was mentored by seminal Cuban bassist Orlando 'Cachaito' Lopez and toured with seminal pianist/composer Emiliano Salvador. Arango was the founding bassist for N.G. La Banda, who he played with for 15 years. With N.G. La Banda, Arango developed a new style of Cuban dance music called 'timba'. He was responsible for leading Cuban bassist into a new approach to bass that greatly enhanced the melodic, percussive overall sound of the instrument in Cuban music.
