Vieja Trova Santiaguera
La Vieja Trova Santiaguera is a Cuban musical band that formed in 1994 and became successful in Europe. Its members included:
In the Dutch documentary Lagrimas Negras they are shown as true supporters of the Cuban Revolution, bringing homage to the grave of 'Carlos Marx'.

Earlier in his career, Rey had replaced Compay Segundo as his brother Lorenzo's partner in the duo Los Compadres. He was also a founder of the Cuarteto Patría, now led by Eliades Ochoa.
