Manolito Y Su Trabuco

Manolito Y Su Trabuco


On February 26, 1993, pianist Manolito Simonet parted company with Maravilla de Florida after more than six years as musical director. Many of the members followed and with the addition of a horn section, a synthesizer, and a kick drum, they started playing timba under the name Manolito y su Trabuco.

Because of the band’s arrangements, Manolito y su Trabuco is one of the few timba bands that has experienced noteworthy cross-over into the salsa market. Manolito’s exceptionally creative use of multiple contrapuntal moñas (horn guajeos) is a rarity in timba, but common in salsa.
