Their music is inspired by the sounds of eastern Cuba at the beginning of the 20th century, in that way of understanding tradition and music as a way of life.
And their lyrics, created in our days, reflect the daily life of a different environment, but sung in the traditional way, become popular sounds of Cuban music.
Mojito con Morena is a project by Totó Noriega and Sofiel Del Pino, Cuban musicians who settled in the Canary Islands more than fifteen years ago, and who continue to be totally linked to the culture and traditions of their country, although the influence of the island culture , known for its collaborations with the most important artists of the islands, such as Mestisay or Taburiente among others, has given them a clear vision of the influences and parallels between their two homelands.
In this case, under the title of `No one plays like Matamoros anymore', their new work, they propose that trip to the traditional music of Cuba, with the sound and forms that, in the twenties of the last century, Miguel Matamoros and His contemporaries made them sound through the streets of Santiago de Cuba and the entire eastern part of the country, reflected in the songs produced by Totó. Along with these arrangements close to the traditional sound, we find Sofiel's lyrics, composed in the Canary Islands with the vision of a Cuban emigrant, but who has found a place where he feels at home. This feeling is reflected in texts that speak to us of the day-to-day peasant life as well as the experiences of any Canarian citizen in his city.
