Calzado began his career at the age of eleven by studying classical
violin. He later graduated from the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Artes
(National School of the Arts) and played professionally with groups in
Havana. His big break came when he joined La Charanga Habanera. La
Charanga was formed in the late Ď80s when a French businessman came to
Cuba looking to form a group to play traditional son music for a
Monte Carlo casino in the summer. In 1992, Calzado took charge of the
group, and began a transformation that made it one of the top timba
bands in the world.
You gotta come out and hear this music!
You'll be dancing all weekend long.
