Life Is a Bolero

For a Cuban band with no name, the moment is now

"Other Cubans who have come here before us [and tried to make a living in music] weren't professional musicians, or more likely, even if they were, they came here for reasons that had nothing to do with music," del Sol says. "Apart from the political situation that brings most people here, we came here to take our music further, and to further our careers as musicians. I think if you work against some of the obstacles, you can change the rules."

After so much bitter sugar, could we really be seeing the stirrings of a great local Latin music scene? Can Cuban music in Miami, that absurd holy grail, ever really thrive? A night at Bolero is proof of the city's ever-ephemeral promise. "There are great musicians in Miami, and I think we can do a lot interesting things," says vocalist Sanchez. "This is our moment. It's just the timing. And with the moment and our musical experience -- onward into the future."
