Born in Matanzas, Cuba in 1918, multi-instrumentalist and band leader Humberto Cané organized one of the most highly regarded bands in the musical history of Mexico in the genres of Mambo and Cha Cha. In 1947 it was Cane's group that backed up Benny More in the recording of a now famous 10-inch LP at the outset of the popularization of Cha Cha and Mambo. Previously recording with Conjunto Matamoros, it is said that his collaborations with El Barbaro del Ritmo had helped spawn his particular soneo style.
