El Septeto Santiaguero

El Septeto Santiaguero was founded in 1995 under the direction of tres player Fernando Dewar. For over twenty years, the group has continued to evolve and mature, synthesizing in its repertory the legacy of traditional son with a contemporary vision.

Since their first CD, entitled simply Septeto Santiaguero, until the most recent, their maxim has always been respect for their predecessors. This is easily verified in their early recordings of “La pulidora,” “La chismosa,” “Para los bailadores” and “Los mangos bajitos,” but also their latest, such as “Oye mi Son santiaguero,” and “Vamos pa’ la fiesta.”
