09/09 | Adonis Puentes and the Voice of Cuba Orchestra (Cuban Son and Salsa) | “The singer-songwriter describes his latest music as “fusion with Cuban roots.” Since his arrival in Canada 14 years ago, Mr. Puentes has earned critical acclaim as a soñero, singing ballads backed by the mix of Spanish guitars with African rhythms peculiar to Cuba.” Tom Hawthorn, The Globe & Mail
“Puentes soars and glides effortlessly over his original material. His songs are fine examples of the kind of singing Cuban performers are renown for, heartfelt and emotional and delivered with a simple elegance. Nobody does it better than Adonis Puentes.” Jim McElroy, JazzReview
