Buena Vista Social Club

Less a band than an assemblage of some of Cuba's most renowned musical forces, Buena Vista Social Club's origins lie with noted American guitarist Ry Cooder, who in 1996 traveled to Havana to seek out a number of legendary local musicians whose performing careers largely ended decades earlier with the rise of Fidel Castro. Recruiting the long-forgotten likes of singer Ibrahim Ferrer, guitarists/singers Compay Segundo and Eliades Ochoa, and pianist Rubén González, Cooder entered Havana's Egrem Studios to record the album Buena Vista Social Club; the project was an unexpected commercial and critical smash, earning a Grammy and becoming the best-selling release of Cooder's long career. In 1998 he returned to Havana with percussionist son Joaquim to record a solo LP with Ferrer; the sessions were captured on film by director Wim Wenders, who also documented sell-out Buena Vista Social Club live performances in Amsterdam and New York City. (Wenders' film, also titled simply Buena Vista Social Club, earned an Academy Award nomination in 2000.) The public's continued interest in Cuban music subsequently generated solo efforts from Segundo and González as well as a series of international live performances promoted under the Buena Vista Social Club aegis. A concert CD, At Carnegie Hall, drawn from the same triumphant show that Wenders featured in his documentary, was released in 2008. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Their careers didn't end with the rise of Castro but ended through our embargo of everything Cuban. Ry Cooder went to Havana not only for the Cubans but to bring them together with musicians from Mali. The musicians from Mali had problems with their papers and couldn't enter Cuba. So Cooder made a record with only the Cubans. The Afro Cubism project was realized about 4 years ago.
This is the bestest! <3 this!!! Brings back memories.

Pandora is the worse crap to listen music Iheart is the way to go F**k this s**t!
Absolutely outstanding work on behalf of Ry Cooder for bringing this to light. These musicians were politically and artistically oppressed by a system that wanted and welcomed changes. Change is not always for the better.

What a pure joy to listen to this music! Reminds me of the bands we heard on the Havana radio stations back in the 50s. In those days you could pick up the Cuban am radio stations in Tampa without any trouble.
I like it
The old school recording techniques makes this album an incredible production. Back ground echoes every body recording at the same time and room. A master piece!
