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 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 percussionist son Joaquim 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 simply 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. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

A very special friend introduced me to the Buena Vista Social Club on a cd at his home around 1999. I have enjoyed every listen since now 15 years of pleasure from vital, vibrant musicians whose love of life and music is instantly apparent. What talent! What joy to hear!

Pandora is the worse crap to listen music Iheart is the way to go F**k this s**t!
Absolutely outstanding work on behalf of Ry Cooder for bringing this to light. These musicians were politically and artistically oppressed by a system that wanted and welcomed changes. Change is not always for the better.

What a pure joy to listen to this music! Reminds me of the bands we heard on the Havana radio stations back in the 50s. In those days you could pick up the Cuban am radio stations in Tampa without any trouble.

I like it
The old school recording techniques makes this album an incredible production. Back ground echoes every body recording at the same time and room. A master piece!
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Thank you Ry, for making this happen, before these incredible artist were lost into the mist of time.
que viva el son

This,listen
This is life
Cool, vibing!! ❌❤❌❤
Esta cancion es muy caliente!!!!
Me encanta la canción ChanChan, es una mósica que me da mucha nostalgia...
Born here in N.Y.C., to Cuban Grand Parents, and second generation mother, raised here from the age of 11, I can only dream of what the beautiful island of Cuba is really like, and fantasize of it's life style. Pictures on the internet, stories from my parents hardly express all that is Cuba. One day, however, I will return there in honor of my parents, and honor Cuba for all she is. A paradise... God Given! Play on my brothers, play the music that touches all our hearts.
This son is one of the prettiest and most heart wrenching songs to me. Sooo remind me of my grandparents and parents who were born in Cuba!! With all the monstrositie s going on right now with Castro and his Communist ways, sadly I will not be able to go visit their home land. I pray that God will restore it to it's Glory as it was when Hemingway wrote about it being the pearl of all isles....if anyone has not seen the movie Buena Vista Social Club, please check it out..it's AMAZING!!!

I like this music and especially Reuban Gonzales' piano work. I really takes me to exotic places in my mind.
Esta composicion tiene que estar en el panteon de la musica clasica al lado de los clasicos Mozart, Bethoven y Cia

How cool! I am so lucky to have been exposed to this musical treat. I'm sure that our parents felt the same and were honored to have (perhaps) even seen these and similar artists perform back then. Thanks Pandora for bringing this station to us all.
to below... Thats awesome. Not just wiring the sound, haha thats cool, but that you raise youre children to real beutiful unheard of on the radio or your top forty radio music. Its funny how the best music is oftn not whats on the radio comonly but whats more underground and passed on from older to younger or friend to friend, exploring Pandora ect. Stay open, Listen clearly, fill your soul and jus roll to the sounds that flow and make you lose yourself in the music it self. Music can take you a
I've wired my house with sound just so I can play this station (on pandora) on Saturday mornings. it reminds me of my mother's routine in Miami growing up. My kids now 13 and 16 love it.
Beautiful!
I am from Ethiopia and do not understand a word of Spanish, but my goodness this music is beautiful.
I can never get enough of these guys they are the best in latin music and I listen to allot of latin music old and new. No artist can compare.
Compay Segundo made me pick up the guitar again after 20 years. RIP, Senior.
