SAVOR was started by Cuban born Victor Alavarez in 1997. He was already a seasoned musician long before moving to New Mexico having paid his musical dues while living in Houston, Texas. From his days as a guitar soloist, blue grass combo mando-man, Hawaiian music minstrel and Latin big band leader back in Houston, Victor had always wanted to express his Cuban roots by playing the songs that he had grown up hearing in his native Havana. After getting burnt out with the big band scene in the big city he moved out to New Mexico. It was not long before Victor realized that his heart yearned to express his Cuban roots through his talent as a mandolin player of thirty years and that the “land of enchantment” was the place to do it.
The group which fans and music lovers now see performing in many venues in Santa Fe is the product of several years of hard work and dedication to a personal quest of homage to a long vibrant Cuban heritage of great music and culture. We invite all who find themselves curious about Cuban rhythms and Cuba’s music to come out, hear us and party with us like on the streets of Havava vieja!
