Publicity photo of Septeto Flores

The Pedro Flores led ensemble from 1930 captures a young Pedro Marcano posing with a pair of claves. Standing from L-R are Daniel Sanchez, Pedro Ortiz Davila, aka "Davilita," "Piquito" Marcano. Seated from L-R are Pedro Flores, Candido Vicenty and unidentified percussionists. The band consisted of both Cuban and Puerto Rican musicians. A consistent fact for the era during the advent of the recording industry.
