- Hear vocalist Omara Portuondo at her <a target="_blank" href="http://www.omaraportuondo.com/">website</a>.
Since its introduction to an international audience by American guitarist Ry Cooder, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club has become a worldwide sensation. Over a decade’s worth of touring has only increased the group’s enthusiasm for performing to packed houses and their sound has remained utterly fresh since the release of their debut album in 1997.
The band continues to thrive with the addition of skilled musicians and legendary Buena Vista Social Club alumni such as trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, vocalist Omara Portuondo and laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres, who are passionate about Cuban music. Each put their individual stamp on classic styles such as the son montuno, danzón, cha cha cha, bolero, and Cuban jazz. Talented young pianist Roberto Fonseca opens the evening with a program of deep, soulful and expressive Latin jazz notes.
