Buena Vista Social Club : 21/10/2013

Buena Vista Social Club : 21/10/2013

Following their sold out performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011 Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club™  return this 2013,  joined on stage for the first time this century, by Eliades Ochoa the  interpreter of Chan Chan in the original Buena Vista film and record. Tonight’s show also features the divine vocal talents of Omara Portuondo the first lady of Cuban music.

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club™  has played together for over half a century. Their most influential style is the exuberant, polyrhythmic music known as son, which gave birth to both Mambo and Salsa. Their upbeat numbers are full of infectious guitar licks, multi-layered Afro Cuban rhythms, soaring vocal melodies, and brash, big band horn parts. These are complimented by deliciously slow bolero ballads and majestic danzones feature the swell of strings, with vocals conveying messages of romance hidden behind arrestingly beautiful melodies.
