About “Son del Caribe”: Under the artistic direction of Jaime Morales, music professor at Miami University in Oxford, OH, and a top Salsa musician from Puerto Rico, "Son del Caribe" quickly became the top Salsa band in Ohio. Jaime performed with such Salsa legends as Eddie Palmieri and Gilberto Santa Rosa and the band richly benefits from his experience. Playing Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Son, and Bachata, "Son del Caribe" is a delight for anybody who loves dancing to the hot rhythms of the Caribbean!
