Folk Band 5244
Havana, Cuba


Twelve women, who cultivate the popular music by mixing the most traditional rhythms, with the Contemporary Cuban music, make up the group.
Nowadays regarded as one of the major
performers of the "salsa" music, highlighted by its sonority that makes it well distinguishable and welcome both by the critics and the dancers throughout Cuba and various countries. The Orchestra, founded by Concepcion Castro in 1932, was by that time
the first Cuban Son-female Septet that later on turned into a jazz-band format and typical-charanga orchestras.

In 1983, having completed their academic course in "Amadeo Roldan" Music School, the two sisters, Georgia and Dora Aguirre who, along with a number of musicians graduated from various music schools, decided to further cultivate the Cuban music with
their female features. In Cuba, they appeared on the primary scene of the Cuban popular and dance music, cultural events, radio and TV programs, after which they were labeled as "the most popular female orchestra and one of the main Cuban popular musical group".

In September of 1997 the group spent more than three months in a large tour around the People's Republic of China where they appeared in 34 cities, including Hong Kong. Theatres, stadiums, dance halls and universities were the venues during this tour, characterized by an unexpected success, since this was the first time a Cuban orchestra performed before Chinese
audiences. Cuban, International and Chinese popular songs mixed with Cuban rhythms made up the repertoire.

In June-July 1998, they toured around Europe where they appeared in different French cities: Marseilles, Bordeaux, Paris, Strassbourg, Rouen, Montpellier and Laseyne Sour Men and a number of important disco-dancing halls and festivals from Holland (Leiden, Amsterdam, Gorenchen), Belgium (Color Café Festival of Brussels) Spain (Barcelona and Castellon), Italy
(Latin-American Festival of Rome) and Germany (Mamheim City). At the end of July, they joined the staff of "Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme" and Chaillot Company again to appear in Festivals (Perpignan and Verson La Romana) and for a "Noche Cubana" concert at the Canet Beach, France.
