Buena Vista Social Club live at the White house

For the first time in more than 50 years, U.S. President Barack Obama welcomed a musical band from Cuba. The Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club performed at a White House reception Thursday to mark Hispanic Heritage Month and the 25th anniversary of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

"It is wonderful to have you here. I was explaining to them that when the documentary about the Buena Vista Social Club came out, I was told it was around 1998, I bought a CD," said President Barack Obama, who asked the audience to "give it up" for the group.
