Recorded in Milano (Italy) - July 2013 - Villa Arconati Music Festival

Buena Vista Social Club®
released its only studio album, produced by Ry Cooder, in 1997 and achieved instant success. The album, featuring a specially assembled group of veteran Cuban musicians, was further propelled by Wim Wender’s acclaimed film and later by a series of internatinal tours and albums by many of the featured musicians. Buena Vista Social Club® became a phenomenon.

At the forefront of the group are four musicians who will be recognized from the Buena Vista Social Club® film: trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, Laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres and trombonist Jesús “AguajeRamos. A younger generation of Cuban musicians is represented by such a talents as the renowned vocalist Carlos Calunga and virtuoso pianist Rolando Luna.
