Niño Torrente and Son de Hoy is a New York City band led by Cuban born bassist, singer, and composer, Niño Torrente. Its repertoire ranges from traditional Cuban songs to original compositions. The band´s tight sound draws from old rhythms filtered through the multicultural energy of New York City. Son de Hoy appears weekly at Son Cubano and Cuba, and has also played at Nell´s the Village Underground, La Belle Epoque, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, Risa, and Cafe Pertutti. Son de Hoy is a mixture of rhythmic overtones with warm harmonies, romantic lyrics, and an urban feel that makes you tap your feet and sway to the rich sounds. Memorable hooks stay with you long after you´re done listening. The compositions move both body and spirit. Niño Torrente does play CUBAN Music! And well, very well indeed. Before returning to his Cuban roots, Niño Torrente played a wide range of styles. In the early 90´s, he formed a soul and funk band, Live Wire, with guitarist Ralph Nelson. Torrente and Nelson wrote dozens of songs that Live Wire performed, along with funk standards at Harry´s in San Francisco and at other venues in the Bay Area. More recently, Torrente was chosen by filmmaker Malcolm Lam to compose the music for this new narrative film," Falling Rhythm", about Latin dance. The album Niño Torrente and Son the Hoy  was produced by Malcolm Lam and Niño Torrente and contains some of the sound track for the film. This is what Juan Moreno, from 6moons.com, says: "The sound here is tight and on time if you know what I mean - on clave, solid. This is a highly danceable recording that, although not being heavily marketed, is one of the best new productions of its kind. The musicians are a classic mix of Cubans and Puerto Ricans that will make the music fan reminisce about the pre-Castro days when the Cuban influx into New York formed the vital base for the development of the Mambo era. We are living in different times now but there is no stopping quality of which there is plenty in this production. Son de Hoy is a definite throwback to the good old days" "We are very proud to have among us Niño Torrente. He is a seasoned musician and composer, he is sorrounded by talented musicians,  and the sound is sooo Cuban." Stated record company owner, Lola Arcaya-DeLucia. " I believe tha Cuban Music is a MUST have in your collection of Latin Music" Ardel Records has picked this wonderful production and its job is to make it available to the audience.
