Buena Vista Social Club – Request this excursion


Who hasn’t heard of the Buena Vista Social Club by now? Made world famous by the project spearheaded by Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González and US guitarist Ry Cooder, this super group was composed of veterans of a members club in Havana, called Buena Vista Social Club where musicians used to hang out and jam. Half a century after the club closed, Cooder and company convened some of those same musicians to record an album.

The Buena Vista Social Club became an international sensation, performing overseas for the first time in 1998 in Amsterdam. This was followed by a second concert in New York City’s hallowed Carnegie Hall. The German filmmaker Wim Wenders had his cameras rolling during the concerts and the documentary became a smash success; it was subsequently nominated for an Academy Award.

Leading stars including Compay Segundo, Rubén González and Ibrahim Ferrer performed until their curtain fell for the last time, in 2003 for Segundo and for González and 2005 for Ferrer, at the ripe old age of ninety-five, eighty-four, and seventy-eight respectively.

Since 2006, successors of the Buena Vista Social Club have played regularly at the Plaza Américas Salon Plenario in Varadero. Special musical guests such as Eliades Ochoa, Guajiro Mirabal, Salvador Repilado, Barbarito Torres, Hugo Garzon, and Aguaje Ramos sit in occasionally; this is a superb opportunity to hear the legendary music of this golden age.
