In the mid 1990s, a group of talented young musicians got together with the common aim of rescuing the classic but rather forgotten Cuban son. They managed to restore the freshness and authenticity of that genre with the style and line-up of a traditional septet featuring double bass, guitar, tres, congas, trumpet, percussion and vocals. It a about love which like a leaf when it dries out comes to nothing.
