Adonis Puentes

Adonis Puentes has the gift to see both the past and the present of Cuban music. And,on Vida, his solo debut, he shows that he is uniquely qualified to straddle the generations, embodying a contemporary vision of a true Cuban Sonora.

Such a gift cannot be acquired or cultured, you have to been born with it, as was Adonis and his fraternal twin brother, Alexis on March 29th, 1974 in Havana, Cuba, sons of guitar player and instructor, Valentin Puentes. The boys grew up 45 miles southwest of old Havana in Artemisa, literally across the street from the small town's cultural centre.The musical traditions of Cuba were a daily occurrence at the centre. Two or three bands would rehearse there each week and it was also the site of major concert performances.
