Jorge Cordero (Cuba/Denmark)

Jorge Cordero was born into a msical family in the Holguin province in Cuba.He was educated as a percussionist at the conservatory of Havana.
In the 70'ies Cordero moved with his family to Denmark, where he joined the prolific rock scene of his new home town, Århus. After some years as a rock musician his  interest turned towards the musical culture of his native Cuba. He formed the band Luna and released one album, Que Vida.
In 1982 Cordero joined Salsa Na Ma as a singer. He stayed in the band for ten years resulting in two albums.
In 1987, while still in Salsa Na Ma, Cordero formed his own band, Grupo Cordero. The band gained international  success in 1992 as they were invited to play the Festival de la Calle Ocho in Miami. This led to a contract with an american label. The band was renamed to Jorge Cordero Y los Gran Daneses and the album Rompiendo el Hielo was recorded in Miami. The album placed high in the american world music charts and the band toured in the US and Europe.
A contractual disagreement forced the band to take a break from the american market. Meanwhile two further albums were released in Europe. One of these, Al Tiempo, won the 1999 Danish National Radio World Music Awards. This gave Cordero the opportunity to tour in Cuba.
Jorge Cordero & los Gran Daneses has continued to tour and release albums in the new millenium and the band is considered one of the best salsa bands in Europe.
