  • The Buena Vista Social Club's debut album, also titled "Buena Vista Social Club," was recorded in 1996. The seven-day recording session with Ry Cooder and Nick Gold at EGREM studio in Havana is legendary today. Over the years, the album became the most successful album of Cuban music and the best-selling world music album ever.

    Already during the sessions for the album and at some of the concerts that followed, director Wim Wenders began recording for the documentary film, also titled "Buena Vista Social Club." The film and the big world tour became extremely successful and the Buena Vista Social Club won new friends all over the world for their music from pre-revolutionary Cuba - the "Son Cubano".

    Whether there was still unreleased material in the archive, all participants were asked again and again since then. And exactly such material is now available on the new album "Lost And Found". As the name suggests, the recordings were probably lost in the archive. The fourteen new tracks are partly from the above-mentioned recording session, but in addition, live recordings, from the period immediately after the release of the debut album, are included.

    "Lost And Found" offers once again the opportunity to hear the cast of the original studio sessions. Included are Cachaíto López, Guajiro Mirabal, Eliades Ochoa, Omara Portuondo and the now sadly deceased members of the Buena Vista Social Club Ibrahim Ferrer, Rubén González and Compay Segundo. The veterans are complemented by younger comrades-in-arms, who also support the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club on tour.

    The tracks are proven favorites of the musicians, and "Lágrimas Negras" is still one of the most popular Cuban songs. The sound seamlessly follows the debut. In addition to piano, guitars, trombone and bass, the arrangement again features the laúd and congas. The Buena Vista Social Club invites you to dance with rhythms from rumba to salsa.

    On "Lost And Found" Buena Vista Social Club presents true treasures from the archive. Finally you can hear the previously unreleased material from the debut album.


    "Swaying rhythms carried by rolling piano, lush horns, finely played guitars and sparkling percussion - alongside radiant voices of Segundo, Portuondo, Ochoa, ... We take a bow. The sound: vivid, spatial - glorious!" (Audio, April 2015)
