“Quinteto La Moderna” is the Bay Area’s first quintet dedicated to the Cuban musical style known as “charanga”. It features the flute and violin of Miguelito Martinez and Tregar Otton respectively, as they fashion strong melodic figures over the hard driving rhythm section of Bay Area Latin music stalwarts John Calloway, Steve Senft-Herrera and Michael Spiro. The group’s repertoire ranges from the danzon to songo, from the cha-cha-cha to timba, and is truly the ideal group for both listening and dancing.
