Compay Segundo Group

Concert: Grupo Compay Segundo, Iconic band from Havana

Sunday: 7:00 PM – February 25, 2018, Mizner Park Amphitheater

Grupo Compay Segundo

The legacy of Máximo Francisco Repilado Muñoz, known professionally as Compay Segundo, continues to radiate through the musical group that he founded in 1955 and that adopted his name. Currently appearing as the Compay Segundo Group, the musicians that accompanied him in his triumphant tours are fully dedicated to preserving and enriching his contributions to the cultural heritage of Cuba, among which are the invention of a musical instrument called the armónico and the use of clarinets in traditional Cuban music.

Compay Segundo’s discography includes Antología de Compay Segundo, Yo Vengo aquí, Lo Mejor de la Vida, Calle Salud, Siempre Compay, and the Grammy-nominated Las Flores de la Vida. They also participated in the Grammy award-winning Buena Vista Social Club album. They travel constantly to participate in international festivals, concerts, and events, but continue to play in Havana Saturday nights at the Compay Segundo Salón 1930 at Cuba’s National Hotel. Francisco Repilado established this Salón on the eightieth anniversary of his artistic career, and it continues to be a distinguished and classic space for all those who wish to enjoy good Cuban music.

The current members of Compay Segundo are:

Salvador Repilado Labrada (director-double bass) Félix Martínez Montero (armónico) Hugo Garzón Bargalló (lead and maracas) Rafael Inciarte Rodríguez (clarinet) Haskell Armenteros Pons (clarinet) Nilso Arias Fernández (second guitar) Rafael Fournier Navarro (percussion) Joel Matos Rodríguez (second guitar) Rafael Inciarte Rodríguez (clarinet)
