The great Omara Portuondo, the female voice of the original Buena Vista Social Club, is a living legend of Cuban music. She now fronts the extraordinary Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, which on recent tours has taken “the atmosphere up to a breathless level" (The Independent) in performances that “left audiences awe-struck” (Financial Times). The mesmerizing flamenco dancer Nelida Tirado, who moves “as if her body were a medium for some unearthly force," (NY Times) will bring the evening into sharp focus with a percussive opening set.
