'The Bar at Buena Vista' takes the listener back to the Beuna Vista Social Club with Pio Leiva and more.
In the district of Buena Vista there is a Club called Club Social de Buena Vista, where the best-known artists meet. In the 90s the club unexpectedly became world famous. The elderly gentlemen recorded a CD which catapulted them into the worldwide charts. The accompanying movie, 'Buena Vista Social Club', was even nominated for an Oscar. 'The Bar at Buena Vista' takes the listener back to the nostalgia of that era. Pio Leiva, one of the legendary greats of the Buena Vista Social Club, sings the ballad 'Desvuelo de Amor' and 'Yo no soy mentiroso' which made him unforgotten in the whole of Cuba. The master of Cuban piano 'Rubalcaba' interprets the Cuban world hit 'El Manisero' and JosÃ© Artemio Castaneda sings his song 'Maracaibo Oriental' which he wrote for Beny MorÃ©, promoting him to the ranks of the legendary Cuban composers. The greatest hit from the Buena Vista Social Club 'Chan Chan', composed by Francisco Repilado, better known as Compay Segundo, is sung by his nephews. Teresita Cartula, who together with Omara Portuondo was one of the most famous Cuban female vocalists of that era, sings the classic 'Oye Ramon.'
