Pedrito Calvo Concert Saturday 1st August 2015
PEDRITO CALVO IN CONCERT @ THE DOME
LOS VAN VAN’S MOST POPULAR AND CHARISMATIC SINGER
TOGETHER LIVE IN CONCERT!!!
In the 46 years of its extraordinary musical voyage, many of Cuba’s most talented musicians have passed through the island’s undisputed number one dance band, Los Van Van.
In that time, the breadth and scope of the band’s popular tracks have been and continue to be the soundtrack to generations of Cubans’ lives, as well as to the lives of the band’s leagues of fans around the globe.
While the music of Los Van Van is of course a collaborative effort, no one is associated more closely with their big hitting anthems than those who sang them. And when it comes to big hitters, you’d be hard pushed to find the equals of these 3. Together they span the decades when the band arguably produced some of their most memorable, best-loved and successful songs.

Pedro Calvo is an icon in Cuban music, instantly recognisable from his trademark thick black moustache and wide-brimmed hat. His popular appeal stems from his charismatic personality and unique singing style with its clever word play and expressive rhythmic vocal sounds. Joining the band in 1974, before he left 26 years later at the time he had recorded more hits than any other singer in the band, including La Sandunguera, Que Le Den Candela, La Titimánía, El Negro No Tiene Na’, Mi Chocolate, El Negro Está Cocinando, Sera Que Se Acabo, La Habana No Aguanta Mas, and Marilú among many others.
Before launching a solo career in the nineties which has produced 6 strong albums, Ángel Bonne sang, played sax and composed for Los Van Van on two of their most memorable masterpieces, Disco Azúcar and Lo Último En Vivo. Ángel inherited his gift for songwriting from his father Enrique Bonne, one of the most important figures of the 1960s and 70s. His soulful harmonies and lyrics have won him a loyal following around the world. His most popular songs with Los Van Van are Havana City, Disco Azúcar, and Pura Vestimenta.

Pedrito Calvo y la Justicia
PEDRITO CALVO Y LA JUSTICIA
Pedro Calvo is a popular Cuban singer sometimes affectionately nicknamed Pedrito, meaning “little Pedro”. He is most famous for his time with Los Van Van one of Cuba’s premier dance bands, which he joined in 1974. During the late 1990s, Calvo formed part of the infamous lead singing trio of Los Van Van along with Mayito Riverra and Roberton Hernandes. These three singers alternated singing the lead and backing parts on Los Van Van tracks. Some of the more notable tracks that Calvo sang the lead part on during this period are El Negro Está Cocinando, Mi Chocolate and La Fruta. Calvo was also the lead singer on Que le den Candela and Sandunguera, two famous Los Van Van tracks from an earlier period. While Calvo is an accomplished and competent singer, it could be claimed that he did not have the technical ability and voice quality of his fellow Los Van Van singers, Mayito Rivera and Roberto Hernandez. Rather, Calvo’s appeal seems to be his charismatic personality and unique singing style which often included clever word play and expressive rhythmic vocal sounds. Calvo’s trademark look is a thick black moustache and wide-brimmed white hat.
In 2001, Calvo left Los Van Van to pursue his own musical career. At the time many people speculated that his departure was due to Personality Clashes between him and other members of the band. Calvo has since formed his own band called Pedrito Calvo y La Justicia. So far the band has released three albums which have mostly been made up of remakes of some of the famous songs which Calvo sang with Los Van Van. These albums have received a mixed response from critics and have not received the same acclaim and popularity that the new albums of Los Van Van and Cesar Pupy Pedroso (another former Los Van Van musician) have had during this period.
