Participants in the Danzonero International Meeting Miguel Failde in Memoriam, for the members of the dancer La Playa, who at that time felt the matanceros beat of the danzón, represents an invaluable pleasure to be part of the rescue of a genre from which Mexico became by force Constancy and respect in his second homeland.

But the reprobation and the pessimistic statements only fueled the boy’s desire to carry the line of his musical blood, a lineage that he defends at every cost in every presentation of his orchestra. It could not be different, Ethiel Failde takes the music running through his veins.
