Event Details:

As we celebrate its 20th anniversary, join us for the Buena Vista Social Club. Traveling from the streets of Havana to the stage of Carnegie Hall, this revelatory documentary captures a forgotten generation of Cuba’s brightest musical talents as they enjoy an unexpected encounter with world fame. The veteran vocalists and instrumentalists collaborated with American guitarist and roots-music champion Ry Cooder to form the Buena Vista Social club, playing a jazz-inflected mix of cha-cha, mambo, bolero, and other traditional Latin American styles, and recording an album that won a Grammy and made them an international phenomenon. In the wake of this success, director Wim Wenders filmed the ensembles’ members-including golden-voiced Ibrahim Ferrer and piano virtuoso Rubén Gonzalez-in a series of illuminating interviews and live performances. The result is one of the most belove documentaries of the 1990’s, and an infectious ode to a neglected corner of Cuba’s prerevolutionary heritage.
