José “Pepito” Gómez emerged from his hometown of Camagüey, Cuba to become lead singer of Maravilla de Florida, Charanga Latina Orchestra and Habana Ensemble, respectively. He toured with the late Compay Segundo of the Buena Vista Social Club, and was a lead singer of Cuban mega-band Pupy y Los Que Son Son before moving to the U.S. Backed by a powerhouse ensemble of NYC Cuban all-stars, he moves from heart-wrenching romantic ballads to high-octane timba arrangements, replete with torrents of improvisations and frenzy-inducing call-and-response. His tribute to the Buena Vista Social Club project is a true homage to the Cuban legends.
