Conjunto Chappottín y Sus Estrellas was one of the most famous groups to play dance music in Havana during the 1940’s and 1950’s, often known as the heyday of Cuban music. They were seen weekly in the black Social Clubs and on the radio. Felix Chappottín’s grandson along with Miguelito Cuni’s son have continued the time-honored tradition of a playing Son Montunos, a genre of Cuban music derived from combining Cha Cha Cha with Son. Here on their first US tour Chappottin y Sus Estrellas perform one of their trademark songs, “Chappottineando” at the Kumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz. Produced by Alma Artist Booking and Management, Kaisha Johnson and The Cuban Music Project.
