This event has finished

The Buena Vista Social Club was a members' club in Havana, Cuba, that closed in the 1940s, as well as a 1990s band, a 1997 album, a 1999 film, and an unofficial brand name representing the musical spirit of the original Havana club.

The original Buena Vista Social Club held dances and musical activities, becoming a popular location for musicians to meet and play during the 1940s. In the 1990s, nearly 50 years after the club was closed, it inspired a recording made by Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González and American guitarist Ry Cooder with traditional Cuban musicians, some of whom were veterans who had performed at the club during the height of its popularity.

The CCCL is organizing a charity concert featuring the legendary Cuban band “Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club" featuring Omara Portuondo, Guajiro Mirabal, Barbarito Torres, Jesus "Aguaje" Ramos.

*All proceeds will go towards the treatment of children at CCCL.

The show will include a performance of the legendary band’s famous hits!!

The Buena Vista Social Club are a formidable thirteen piece band direct from Havana, featuring legends of Cuban music and stars of the Buena Vista Social Club film and World Circuit's much acclaimed Cuban albums. This is the genuine article, transporting audiences to the heart of Havana's clubs and dancehalls. Having refined their skills over many years, their passion for the music has remained undimmed, and this remarkable group of musical giants performs with an exuberance that is as vital as ever.
