Buena Vista Social Orchestra

The Buena Vista Social Orchestra, under the direction of trombonist Jesus “Aguaje” Ramos, continues the legacy of the legendary Buena Vista Social Club in an exciting new stage production featuring the ensemble’s greatest hits and deep-dive cuts.

In this inaugural tour, Ramos is joined by an all-star ensemble including three original BVSC members, "Betun" Luis Mariano Valiente Marin (Congas, Bongo), Emilio Senon Morales Ruiz (Piano) and Fabían Garcia (Bass), as they showcase the Cuban musical heritage that gave birth to Latin Jazz, Salsa and many other genres of music as we know them today.

The group became a worldwide phenomenon in 1997 when the ensemble of top-tier Cuban musicians released their eponymous, award-winning debut album. While critically acclaimed, album sales quickly rose beyond the niche world-music audience almost entirely by word-of-mouth. To date, the Buena Vista Social Club and related projects have amassed global sales over 50 million, making it the biggest-selling Cuban music project in history. As one critic put it, Buena Vista’s groundbreaking work has become “world music’s equivalent of The Dark Side of the Moon.”
