Recorded in just six days in 1996 with a stellar cast of Cuban musicians, Buena Vista Social Club has become a musical phenomenon. Awarded a Grammy in 1997 it has sold well over 8 million copies to date and introduced the world to Cuban son, as well as launching both Ibrahim Ferrer and Ruben Gonzalez as near household names.
