Adonis Puentes and the Voice of Cuba Orchestra Perform at Caltech

Adonis Puentes and the Voice of Cuba Orchestra will perform on Saturday, Jan. 20, at 8 p.m. in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.
Fronting an all-Cuban acoustic orchestra, Puente’s vocals are surrounded by guitar, piano, bass, trumpet and percussion. Puentes opens up the world of Cuban music to his audiences when they hear his rich voice, accompanied by the other players’ tight, multilayered arrangements.
Adonis was born into an atmosphere of Cuban music. His family lived 45 miles southwest of Havana, Cuba, in the town of Artemisa. His father, Valentin Puentes, taught music and played guitar, and he passed on his gifts to Adonis and his fraternal twin brother, Alexis (aka Alex Cuba). At the age of 6, Adonis was playing with a Children’s Guitar Ensemble formed by Valentin. By the time he was 14, he was singing and writing his own music.
