Orquesta Sublime was founded in Cuba in 1956 by flautist Melquiades Fundora as a Cuban Charanga orchestra. The group, which actual found some pre-embargo success in tours to Florida, continues to be a traditional charanga group in that it features a light, organic rhythm section of timbales, acoustic bass, güiro, and congas with solo voice and flute taking the melodic lead. It is a sound which was popularized by Orquesta Aragon and which formed a crucial link between son and the later styles up through salsa.
