Conjunto Chappottin

Conjunto Chappottín is one of Cuba’s top son groups. The founding of the band dates back to the 1940s to its founder Arsenio Rodriguez, one the country’s most renowned band leaders with major influences on the Latin jazz and Salsa music of the next decades. With his Conjunto he was the first to add reed and brass instruments to a Latin band at that time. When Arsenio left Cuba in 1950 to undergo an ophthalmological treatment in New York, he handed the musical direction over to his first trumpet player, Felix Chappottín. The band was renamed Felix Chappottín y su Conjunto Todos Estrellas.
