From the Buena Vista Social Club
The legendary Los Van Van
With special guest star Ibrahim Ferrer, Jr.
In 1996, Buena Vista Social Club, with the help of American producer Ry Cooder, helped introduce the world to the golden era of Cuban music. This collective of veteran musicians revived the romantic melodies of 1940s and 1950s Havana and seduced a new generation of listeners, even inspiring a documentary on the movement. This June, Strathmore welcomes former members of Buena Vista Social Club along with an all-star lineup of Cuba’s most celebrated artists. Feel the rhythm of genres such as son cubano, mambo, and guajira fused with modern hip-hop, soul, and R&B.
