Quinteto Criollo, 25 years in defense of the Cuban music

With its imprint on the Cuban culture and a distinctive seal that identifies them given their authenticity and spectacular sounds, El Quinteto Criollo de Villa Clara, arrives, this April 22nd, to its twenty-fifth anniversary.

For the followers of the traditional music of this island, and especially of our country music, these artists leave their traces in this quarter of a century. Mario Gutierrez (Mayito) its director, asserted that since this music group was born, the interest was at defending our traditional music, and thus they grew to take the Cuban rhythms to the most remote places of the island, to renowned national music festivals, while also reaching several international stages, with presentations in Latin American and Caribbean countries, and in Europe; which makes us feel very satisfied, but always with the certainty that we still have a lot to do, because the music work never ends, he added.

On her side, Ernestina Trimino, the youthful voice of the Cuban country music, is very proud to have brought the traditional Cuban music to so many places and to being able to feel the affection of the public.

El Quinteto Criollo is one of the most prestigious music groups to its kind on the island, and in addition to its concerts and its assiduous presence in both the radio and the television programs, it has received important awards and recognitions throughout its history, including the nomination of one of its albums to the Latin Grammys in the 2012.
