Arsenio Rodríguez initially developed Son Montuno from sonFact|date=March 2008. He added instrumental solos called "montunos". He also added guaguancó influence, increased the importance of the trumpets and tres, and added new instruments such as the congas and piano. Benny Moré (popularly known as "El Bárbaro del Ritmo", which translates roughly as "The Fantastic Man of Rhythm") further evolved the genre, adding guaracha, bolero and mambo influences, helping make him extraordinarily popular and is now cited as perhaps the greatest sonero.

Later, mambo was derived from son montuno and danzón by making the montuno sections the focus of songs.
