Orlando Miguel Leyva Saavedra played bongoes for both Charanga Habanera and Charanga Forever.

His incredible gynastic abilities made him a key part of the stage show from 1991 to 1998, when he moved over to Charanga Forever for a period of two years.

His mother, Sonia Saavedra, was the director of the group "Ladysalsa", and today Orlando has taken over that job. He also plays bongoes with the band. [Majela Serrano]
