De donde son los cantantes

There is very little a good son or plena cannot alleviate, and every so often we must sing the very famous Son de la loma. Here it is as sung by the Trío Matamoros, the best, with photographs of Cuba. And Santiago is beautiful, but I am a city person and I like Havana best, and there are good musicians everywhere, but Cuban musicians are the best.

Son is the kind of song, but it also the form of the verb ser meaning they are. Mother, I want to know where the singers are from, for I find them so gallant…. They are Havana, from Santiago, they are from the hill, they sing on the plain, son de la loma.

Axé.
