About this Event

1998 - Son Veneno came to life in Sydney, Australia when brothers Cesar and Steve Marin began playing music together as kids after emigrating from Latin America. Inspired by the music of bands such as Los Van Van and Irakere they found their path through the music of Cuba.

The decision was made to find like-minded musicians, with the intention of forming a band dedicated to raising the standard of Afro-Latin music in Australia.

This musical endeavour led to the formation of SON VENENO.

The early addition of singer/songwriter Carlos Velazquez lifted the project to new heights with a versatile mix of RNB, pop and soul, together with his domination of the Afro-Latin Sonero traditions, the band had found its unique and original voice.

The following years were spent performing around the country, building a healthy fan base and establishing themselves at the forefront of the music industry in Australia. Their extremely high levels of musicianship and performance led to the band being recognised internationally, constantly invited to perform at major festivals and events.

This momentum created the opportunity to collaborate with musicians outside of the Latin genre. The addition of talented young musicians Marcus Salone, Ricky Cancino and Jose Marquez enabled the band to incorporate advanced elements of Funk, Reggae, Jazz and Rock into their music.

The natural progression of composing together unearthed a new alternative sound.

While the Afro-Latin influences were still present, the bands original ‘Son’ influences had developed in to a brand new genre of music.

This evolution contributed to the band’s success, becoming the first Australian-Latin ensemble to make its mark in the global music industry.

Son Veneno’s diversity continued over the years, composing, recording and performing with many international artists including Ozomatli, Aloe Blacc, Maceo Parker, Cubanismo, Los De Abajo, Metallica, Reve Y Su Charangon, Fulanito, Cuban trumpeter Armando Garcia and vocalists Osvaldo Chacon, MC Mystro and Merenia Gillies.
