Buena Vista Social Club

Featuring a Sydney based 11 piece band

Following 2 amazing performances in 2023 and sellout shows in Sydney the ‘Buena Vista Social Club tribute’ returns to MEMO for a very special evening to celebrate the ground breaking ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ albums and artists.

An unforgettable performance of traditional Cuban music with an 11 piece Sydney based band comprised of some of Australia’s best Latin music musicians.

This special tribute night will feature well-known songs from the Cuban ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ artists, Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, Ruben Gonzalez, Omara Portuondo and Eliades Ochoa.

Formed in 1996, ‘The Buena Vista Social Club’ was a musical ensemble made up of older Cuban musicians. The group’s eponymous studio album was recorded in 1996 and released in 1997, quickly becoming an international success. A ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ documentary was released in 1999 to critical acclaim.
The success of both the album and film sparked a revival of interest in traditional Cuban music and some of the performers later released well received solo albums.

‘The Buena Vista Social Club tribute’ night will be a memorable experience, re-creating the authentic sounds of traditional Cuban music and paying tribute to the Cuban music legends.
