WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Afrocubism was the original concept for what ultimately became the Buena Vista Social Club: a musical collaboration between some of the finest instrumentalists and vocalists to be found in Mali and Cuba today. But when the Malian musicians were unable to make it to Cuba, the Buena Vista Social Club took shape in its wake. Fourteen years later the original invitees--including Toumani Diabaté, Elias Ochoa, Bassekou Kouyate, Djelimady Tounkara and Kasse Mady Diabaté--finally united, and now they come to the Schimmel Theatre for an evening of musical fusion that transcends borders and genres.
