César ‘Pupy’ Pedroso is one of the key figures not only in timba, but in the last 40 years of Cuban pop music. As well as being one Cuba’s best and most prolific composers, he played a seminal role in revolutionizing the art of salsa piano playing. He started with Orquesta Revé and then became a founding member of Los Van Van. In the summer of 2001, he left to form his own group, Pupy y Los Que Son Son, which has now released four of the best CD’s of the decade.

His discography included Pupy y Los Que Son Son: Timba – The New Generation Of Latin Music (2001), Que cosas tiene la vida (2002), De la Timba a Pogolotti (2003), Pupy el buenagente (2004), Mi timba cerra (2005), Tranquilo que yo controlo (2008) and Siempre Pupy (2011).
