“This music speaks to you in a natural voice. You don’t have that in modern music anywhere else. In Cuba it is there everyday, flowing like a river.” — Ry Cooder
The man behind the Buena Vista Social Club, Cuban bandleader, producer, and extraordinary impresario, Juan de Marcos, brought together the cream of Cuba’s expatriate musicians, friends, and long-time collaborators to form the Afro-Cuban All Stars.
