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 had 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 his son, percussionist Joachim, 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 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 -- a few years after the deaths of Segundo, Ferrer, and González. In the spring of 2015, Nonesuch/World Circuit released Lost and Found, a collection of unreleased tracks from the 1996 Egrem and 2000 recording sessions, as well as live tracks. A group containing some of the original members called Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club continued to tour, and their farewell tour took place that year. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

You mentioned several of the members of the group but left out Otmara Portuondo. She is also a member of the group and appeared in Ray Cooder's movie/docume n t a r y . She is one of the interpreters in the Veinte Años on the CD.
Soy Cubano y esta musica me trae muy buenos recuerdos.

tired of reading biased and unfair opinions in Pandora about Cuba and their musicians . Pablo Milanes and Silvio Rodriguez are a pair of respectable musicians, whether or not you like their political views, Buena Vista Social Club was not created by anyone else but by the brave people of Cuba.

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.
