On September 14, internationally acclaimed ensemble Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club brings its world tour—recently hailed by the UK press as leaving audiences “awestruck” (Financial Times) and “taking the atmosphere up to a breathless level” (The Independent)—to the US for a run of dates that will hit New York, San Francisco, Austin, Atlanta, Indianapolis, and more. The 15-member lineup includes Latin Grammy Award winners Omara Portuondo and Eliades Ochoa, trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, and laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres, all of whom count themselves among the original members of Buena Vista Social Club.

More than a decade after Buena Vista Social Club’s emergence on the international stage via a Grammy-winning album and an Oscar-nominated documentary by acclaimed director Wim Wenders, the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club continues the pioneering work of the original group. Each member hails from Cuba and brings his or her unique perspective to traditional Cuban music and Latin jazz. See below for full lineup and tour schedule. For additional details and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

In addition to the original Buena Vista Social Club album and Buena Vista Social Club at Carnegie Hall, World Circuit / Nonesuch Records has released solo albums by Omara Portuondo (Buena Vista Social Club Presents Omara Portuondo and Flor de amor) and Guajiro Mirabal (Buena Vista Social Club Presents Manual “Guajiro” Mirabal). Eliades Ochoa is featured on the 2010 World Circuit / Nonesuch album AfroCubism. All three can also be heard, along with Barbarito Torres and other Buena Vista veterans, on the 1999 Afro-Cuban All Stars album Distinto, Diferente.

Opening a number of concerts on the upcoming tour with his quintet will be Cuban pianist Roberto Fonseca, who has been called a “multifaceted virtuoso” by London’s Sunday Times and “a fabulously gifted pianist, composer and bandleader” by The Guardian.
