Music reflects the present and Adonis Puentes is a Cuban Sonero for our times. It's a role he was destined to play. On March 29th, 1974, Adonis was born into an atmosphere charged with Cuban music. His family lived 45 miles southwest of Havana, Cuba in the town of Artemisa. Father, Valentin Puentes taught music and played guitar, and he wasted little time before passing on his gifts to Adonis and his fraternal twin brother, Alexis (aka Alex Cuba). Already at the age of 6, Adonis was playing with a Children's Guitar Ensemble formed by Valentin.
