Son Latino plays Buena Vista Social Club
Halifax's hottest Latin band performs a tribute to the Cuban legends
Sat, May 19 at 7pm
In 1996 a group of Cuban music legends assembled in a Havana recording studio. Most were past their prime; their hey-days had been the 1940s and 50s and their music had passed out of fashion. In just six days of sessions, they produced a remarkable album which they named for an old musicians' hangout in Havana: Buena Vista Social Club. The record became a surprise international sensation, breathing new life into the music of pre-revolutionary Cuba and inspiring a worldwide revival of Latin music.
Twenty years after Buena Vista Social Club's historic performance at Carnegie Hall, Son Latino is proud to present a tribute to the legendary ensemble that still inspires us. Halifax's hottest Latin band takes to The Music Room to perform two sets of timeless classics selected from Buena Vista's repertoire.
