Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club

Adios Tour featuring Omara Portuondo, Eliades Ochoa, Guajiro Mirabal, Jesús “Aguaje” Ramos and Barbarito Torres
Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club
Wednesday, October 7, 2015 - 8:00pm
In his novel Fury, Salman Rushdie refers to the long, hot days of New York in 1998 as “that Buena Vista summer.” That summer was when Buena Vista Social Club’s self-titled album took off and threaded its romantic impulses and uninhibited exuberance into the daily lives of millions of music lovers. Now Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club says “adios” to audiences around the world with their farewell tour, which will end, fittingly, in Havana in the fall of 2015. At the forefront of the group are original band members who will be fondly recognized from the Buena Vista Social Club film: bandleader and trombonist Jesús “Aguaje” Ramos, trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres, vocalist and guitarist Eliades Ochoa and the incomparable vocalist Omara Portuondo.

This event is preceded by a Free Corin Courtyard Concert.
