Description

From dancing on stage of Havana’s famous Tropicana cabaret as teen, to appearing on movie screens around the globe in “The Buena Vista Social Club,” Omara Portuondo’s career has been full of remarkable moments and unforgettable music. For her first U.S. tour since 2004, Omara explores songs that mark her path from celebrated Cuban chanteuse to international stardom, including aching boleros and new Brazilian-influenced ballads.
