For over a decade, Fito Reinoso has made the Bay Area his home and is the only Cuban born based sonero in the area performing a variety of styles, from the most recent urban Havana grooves to “timba” to the classic son and cha-cha-cha, all with a voice reminiscent of the late and beloved legendary Cuban singer, Beny Moré.

At a very young age, Fito began playing tres and bass in the streets of Candekaria, in the province of Pinar Del Rio. He joined Orquesta Gloria de Cuba at the age of 12. A proud Mariel, he arrived to the United States in 1980 and soon began impacting the thriving Bay Area Latin Music scene. Fito has played with Cuban legends such as Francisco Aguabella, Armando Peraza, Carlos "Patato" Valdez and Israel Lopez "Cachao", among many others. He has companied the greatest local musicians without ever loosing his strong ties with Cuba, which transpire in his vibrant and modern repertoire.
