The “abuelos” are back in better shape than ever. You will be able to listen to them live at Palace Hall on May 24, as of 7 pm. Responsible for the highest ever selling world music record, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club is the formidable thirteen-piece band direct from Havana, featuring legends of Cuban Music and the stars of the Buena Vista Social Club film and World Circuit’s much acclaimed albums! Folks – this is the genuine article, the real deal – transporting audiences to the heart of Havana’s clubs and dancehalls. Guajiro Mirabal’s distinctive trumpet sound and characterful playing has earned him the monicker ‘The Trumpet of Cuba’. Aguaje Ramos’ trombone has been an integral part of World Circuit’s Cuban recordings for the past decade. Grammy-winning guitarist Manuel Galbán made his name with seminal 1960s Cuban doo-wop group Los Zafiros. Amadito Valdés is considered Cuba’s leading timbales player, and Barbarito Torres is widely regarded as the world’s leading virtuoso laoud player. Each of these artists has their own take on the gamut of Cuban music, and they’ve put their individual stamp on son montunos, danzón, cha cha cha, boleros, and Cuban jazz. Having honed their skills over many years their passion for the music has remained undimmed, and this remarkable group of musical giants perform with an exuberance that is as vital as ever. A must-see!!
