    Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Omara Portuondo US Tour Opener Canceled; Remaining Shows Go On As Scheduled
    Youri Lenquette

    Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, featuring Omara Portuondo, was due to kick off a three-city tour of the United States with a free outdoor concert in Brooklyn's Prospect Park tonight as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn! series. Unfortunately, the performance has been canceled due to delays in securing visas for all the musicians to travel to New York from Cuba. The opening performance by flamenco dancer Nelida Tirado will take place as planned, followed by a special screening of Wim Wenders’ classic documentary Buena Vista Social Club.

    With visas now secured, Portuondo, the female voice of the original Buena Vista Social Club, and Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, featuring both new musicians and veterans of the original group, like trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal and laoud virtuoso Barbarito Torres, are set to make the remaining two dates on the tour—Saturday at the Ravinia Festival outside Chicago and Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the latter a decidedly eclectic double bill with Goldfrapp—which are due to proceed as scheduled.
