New York.– Cuba's national treasure and innovator of Cuban son Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro will share the Aaron Davis Hall stage with Dominican Republic's foremost Sonero Cuco Valoy.

Developing and mastering the art of the Cuban son for nearly 86 years the globetrotting septet will celebrate their 2013 Latin Grammy nomination in an evening of Cuban Son, the first since their 2009 U.S. presentation breaking a 76-year absence. 

Also joining Septeto Nacional on Friday, November 15, 2013 at 7p.m. at Aaron Davis Hall, for the first time as a special guest will be the Dominican Republic's premier sonero, improvisational singer Cuco Valoy.  

Enchanting audiences around the world with his bewitching style of improvisational son, salsa, merengue, bachata and bolero, in addition to playing and singing Afro-Dominican folk styles like palo, Dominican born Cuco Valoy has been mesmerizing fans since the 50s.

Tickets can be purchased at the Aaron Davis Hall Box Office, located at West 135th Street & Convent Avenue on the campus of The City College of New York, by phone at (212) 650-6900 or by email at

Man, I dunno why, but every time I hear his name Cuco Valoy, I don't think about his merengue hits, but his duo Los compadres. Love their songs!

El Cuco makes good Music, but I like La Cuca better.

How old is the great Cuco Valoy? I met him and his son Ramon Orlando when I was a kid because my dad's family used to live right next to them.
