Orquesta Casino de la Playa

Orquesta Casino de la Playa, founded in 1937 in Havana, Cuba, was a band that bridged Cuban popular music and the sound of American Jazz Big Bands. It was led by tres player Arsenio Rodríguez, and launched the career of many important musicians in Cuban music. The group took its name from the name of the casino where they worked. In 1948, it relocated to Mexico City.
