buena vista social club

For all those Buena Vista Social Club lovers or those who want to get a taste of Cuban's traditional rhythms this afternoon trip will prove a once in a lifetime experience. On this exceptional excursion you will have the opportunity of attending a live concert featuring all of the remaining live Buena Vista Social Club band members.
Buena Vista Social Club was an all black members fraternal group that got together to play in different locations throughout Havana in the years before the revolution. Their music has been described as encapsulating Cuba's "musical golden age" between the 1930s and 1950s. The documentary made by German director Wim Wenders, also named after the band "Buena Vista Social Club" got an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature and won numerous awards including Best Documentary at the European Film Awards.
Your Buena Vista Social Club experience will begin with an evening ride in one of the iconic Cuban vintage cars. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken through the city of Varadero with a stop for dinner. Once at the cabaret you will have the privilege of enjoying the performance of these extraordinary musicians, the famous singers and players of "Son de Cuba" in an intoxicating live concert that will have you tapping your feet and clapping your hands.
This evening of entertainment and musical delight brings together a great mixture of country roots with jazz influences, dub, soul and hip hop. It's quite simply music that cannot be catalogued in a particular genre! So come and join us for an eclectic evening of intoxicating sounds played by true soul musicians, the acclaimed Buena Vista Social Club reunited for a magnificent one night performance.
