Buena Vista Social Club at Carnegie Hall

Buena Vista Social Club at Carnegie Hall by Buena Vista Social Club
Released: Sep 2008
Label: Nonesuch
On July 1, 1998, a group of elderly Cuban musicians walked onstage at Carnegie Hall and, with the first portentous notes of "Chan Chan," brought classic Cuban son to America. It was enough to make you cry. With Ry Cooder's help and Wim Wender's film, Buena Vista and its many spin-off solo acts brought to light some of the greatest music Cuba has ever produced, capturing its enduring elegance and appeal. Many of the principals are dead now -- Compay Segundo, Ruben Gonzalez, Ibrahim Ferrer -- but thankfully they live on in this landmark live recording.
