While well-versed in many different styles, Torres has strong ties to guajiro, a form of Cuban peasant or country music. He even uses a traditional instrument—the laúd, which is a type of lute with 12 strings. Torres joined the group Serenata Yumunina in 1970, but he left a few years later to serve in the Cuban army. In the army, he played jazz with its jazz orchestra and was a member of the marching band.
