The Orchesta Buena Vista Social Club was fantastic. The concert has been over since 9:30 and I'm still buzzing and bopping along to the beat and groove. I've been meaning to hear them for 15 years, since I bought Ry Cooder's seminal album of the same name.
The ensemble this evening included Omara Portuondo who is 80(!) and brought the house down with her energy, charisma and beautiful voice.

What an awesome evening of jazzy latin music. They're on quite a big UK tour at the moment so catch them if you can!
