Juan de Marcos González is a Cuban musician, composer, and bandleader who has made it his goal to showcase the vivacity and diversity of Cuban music for the world to enjoy. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1954, de Marcos studied classical guitar at the Havana Conservatory before earning his doctorate in hydraulic engineering and working as a consultant at the Agronomic Science Institute.
All the while, he could not shake his passion for music. In 1976, while he was a student at university, de Marcos co-founded the music group Sierra Maestro. Sierra Maestro enjoyed mainstream success while reviving the style of traditional Cuban soul music. He is now regarded as one of the genre’s most prominent bands. Juan de Marcos recorded the album A toda Cuba le Gusta with a lineup of nearly 60 performers during the now-famous Buena Vista Social Club sessions in the early 1990s. The group of performers then toured the United States and Europe under the name Afro-Cuban All Stars, spreading the traditional Cuban sound. They can be described as a unique kind of orchestra, playing a mix of salsa, bolero, and chachachá music, among many other traditional Cuban styles.
