Trio Matamoros


Perhaps one of the most popular and influential Cuban sets of the ’20s and ’30s, Trio Matamoros was formed in 1925 by Miguel Matamoros, alongside percussionist Siro Rodriguez and guitarist Rafael Cueto. The music group performed from 1925 until it disbanded in 1969, striking several innovative peaks on the way. Right from the start, the trio produced an impact using its very own unique audio, the bolero-son. Their music was wealthy with harmonies, but additionally featured the solid rhythm from the son, that was blended using the romanticism from the bolero. The music group also extended and contracted many times during its tenure, sometimes performing being a trio, septet, orchestra, and conjunto. Within the ’40s, Matamoros’ tone of voice begun to falter and he recruited several singers to complete for him. From 1945-1947, Beny Moré sang using the music group, at first simply completing Matamoros’ part within the trio’s harmonies, after that taking on a more focal function. Over time, the music group incorporated components of golf swing, mambo, and rhumba to their recordings, and benefited in the mambo craze in america within the ’50s, ultimately recording within a large-band structure that better appropriate the dance fever which was sweeping America.
