The old heroes
of Son are back


CUBAN MUSIC AND POETRY FROM THE LEGENDARY QUARTER OF HAVANA - Since the 1930s, the Buena Vista district of Havana has been a synonym for a focal point of Cuban musical tradition. There are a few traditional compositions which deal with this district and its inspiring effect on the musicians of past generations.

LIVE FROM BUENA VISTA – THE HAVANA LOUNGE - gives an insight into the wide range of the traditional styles of the Son which came together again in a kind of melting pot in and around Buena Vista.

Chan Chan as well as Son classics and other new compositions yet unknown in Europe are performed in a large original line up. THE HAVANA LOUNGE is an union of Top Stars of Havana’s traditional music scene, many of them are also well known in Europe already.

The top stars are: the singer Julio Alberto Fernandez who, together with Compay Segundo, sang the title "Amor de Loca Juventud" on the famous album and worked with. With Julienne Oviedo participates the youngest member of “Buena Vista Social Club“ and a “wizard” of Percussions and Timbales.

The singer Teresa Garcia Caturla is the one and only woman from the “Afro Cuban All Stars” brim-full of this special esprit between a sparkling flame and a tender smelling flower. She also worked with Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Secundo and many other Top Stars of the Cuban music scene for many years. In addition there are Yanko Pizaco, trumpeter from Wim Wenders’ world-famous music film, Tomas Ramos “El Panga”, percussionist at the current project “RHYTHMS DEL MUNDO” as well as Rodolfo “Peruchin” Argudin, pianist of the legendary “Tropicana”.
