The original Buena Vista Social Club album became a surprise international best
seller and the most successful album in the history of Cuban music. It was
recorded for World Circuit Records by Ry Cooder over seven days in Havana in
1996, bringing together many of the great names of the golden age of Cuban music
in the 1950s, several of whom were coaxed out of retirement for the sessions.
In the years that followed the original release, Buena Vista veterans toured the
world and were the subject of a celebrated feature film directed by Wim Wenders.
Further acclaimed recordings followed including solo releases by the singers
Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo, virtuoso pianist Rubén González and bassist
Cachaíto López. A celebratory live album recorded at New York’s Carnegie Hall
was also released. Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, a core band featuring
several of the original musicians, continues to sell out shows worldwide and
will embark on a farewell “Adios” tour in 2015.
"Many of the musicians on this album have been playing for more than a half
century, and they sing and play with an obvious love for the material... the
sound is incredibly deep and rich, something that would have been lost in
digital recording and overdubbing. Cooder brought just the right amount of
reverence to this material, and it shows in his production, playing...If you get
one album of Cuban music, this should be the one." -Steve McMullen,
