Buena Vista Social Club


In 1997, a recording changed the history of Latin music forever. Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González and American guitarist Ry Cooder made a recording with Cuban musicians called the Buena Vista Social Club, which unleashed a fascination for the golden years of Cuban music — including boleros.
