Go to The Bar at Buena Vista

Show details:


Saturday 28 July 2018

Following a sell-out international smash hit tour, The Bar at Buena Vista – The Grandfathers of Cuban Music, returns to Australia in 2018

This unique event is a passport to another time, to the downtown bar of a Havana Club in the 40’s and 50’s. Filled with raunchy salsa, rhythms of tropical jazz and Cuban folk music, The Bar at Buena Vista is as intoxicating as the rum served at the bar on stage.

The Bar at Buena Vista – The Grandfathers of Cuban Music is a dedication to the original spirit of the music of Cuba. It invites us into the Buena Vista neighbourhood – the famous quarter of Havana, to meet Cuba’s music legends, such as the late Compay Segundo and Ruben Gonzalez.

The legendary Cuban masters all return together with the original diva Siomara Avilla Valdes Lescay, and dancing legend Eric Turro.

“Intoxicating Tribute to Old Havana….a cultural exchange not to be missed. The Bar At Buena Vista is brimming with passion” The Australian

“Here in this joyous show is the secret to almost eternal life” Herald Sun, Melbourne

“Rhythmic fluidity and sophistication…undeniable magic” Sydney Morning Herald

“Unforgettable…. Rhythmic vitality….convivial cocktail of music and dance” The Melbourne Age
