Adonis Puentes’ personal odyssey is entwined with the rich musical history of his native Cuba. From early family influences to the masters who enabled new generations to find success in the U.S., Puentes captures the enduring spirit of Cuban music in story and song, with his dynamic band backing his original vocal style.

Inspired by their father, a respected musician in his own right, Puentes and his twin brother, Alexis, began playing in a children’s guitar ensemble at age 6. By age 14, he was singing and writing original songs. Over time, those songs and his skills ripened into his first album of entirely self-composed songs, Sabor a Café.

Puentes has been nominated for a Juno Award and garnered a Grammy Award nomination for his lead vocalist work with the nine-piece, L.A.-based band Mongorama, directed by well-known radio host Jose Rizo. The Puentes brothers’ award-winning 2001 album Morumba Cubana and Puentes’ 2005 solo debut Vida were critically acclaimed, with the latter earning Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year in the Island Music Awards.

Puentes will lecture on the Music of Cuba at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 in Orchestra Hall.
