The Music Hall is teaming up with Gino Castillo to put together an amazing band for this one night only event. The band will play through Buena Vista Social Club’s iconic 1997 album in its entirety. This breakthrough album, produced by Ry Cooder, represents a resurgence in Cuban music as it broke into mainstream America and payed homage to “the music of Cuba’s golden era, the 1940s and 1950s, with the original musicians of that time.”  Rolling Stone described the album as possessing “rare and unconventional beauty.”

Gino Castillo, a well-known Charleston based Conga player and past collaborator with the Charleston Music Hall on shows like Strings and Salsa, has put together a stellar band to bring this album to life. We are flying in musicians from Cuba, Miami, and New York to create the authentic Cuban feel, as well as assembling some of the best players in Charleston to put together a supergroup of sorts. The musicians include: Yusa (Tres, Vocals), GIno Castillo (Congas, Vocals), Abdiel Iriarte (Piano), Jake Holwegner (Upright Bass), Mark Rapp (Trumpet), Ron Wiltrout (Bongos, Timbales), Oliver Valdés (Drums), Jorge Garcia (Guitar) with more musicians TBA. Come celebrate the authentic sounds of Cuba with Buena Vista Legacy: A Tribute to Buena VistaSocial Club.The Music Hall is teaming up with Gino Castillo to put together an amazing band for this one night only event.
