Since the Cuban all-stars known as the Buena Vista Social Club last visited the United States in 2003, iconic founding members guitarist- vocalist Compay Segundo, vocalist Ibrahim Ferrer, and pianist Ruben Gonzalez have passed away. The current 13-piece iteration, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, features founding-generation luminaries like vocalist Omara Portuondo, trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, laud player Barbarito Torres, guitarist-vocalist Eliades Ochoa, and trombonist- vocalist Jesus "Aguaje" Ramos, and has been invigorated by recent recruits like vocalists Carlos Calunga and pianist Rolando Luna. This vital Cuban cultural institution will animate Rose Theater, presenting the stylistic tributaries that feed Cuba's extraordinary 20th century musical legacy with passion, taste, and a fresh modern sensibility.
