When the Buena Vista Social Club, a little known collective of veteran musicians from Cuba, recorded a self-titled album of lively folksongs, Latin jazz and passionate ballads in 1997, they immediately took the world by storm and won a Grammy Award® for their efforts. More than a decade later, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club® - featuring 15 musicians from Cuba, each just as dedicated and passionate as their predecessors - continues the pioneering work of the original group. Their live performances have been hailed by the U.K. press for "taking the atmosphere up to a breathless level," (The Independent) and leaving audiences "awestruck" (Financial Times). Opening for the Orquesta will be one of Havana's most highly praised pianists, Roberto Fonseca.
