HAVANA TIMES — The famous group of traditional Cuban music, Buena Vista Social Club, is preparing to travel to the United States, where it will offer around 20 concerts starting next month, in what will be their biggest tour in that nation, reported Prensa Latina.
Coordination of the presentations in several states is underway. A new CD with unreleased tracks recorded at different times since the creation of the group will be promoted at the concerts. The band has just concluded a 24-concert tour in Europe.
While Buena Vista is 16 years ago, the group composed of thirteen musicians including Eliades Ochoa, Omara Portuondo, and Idania Valdés, will make their first national Cuban tour in 2014, beginning in the far eastern province of Guantanamo.
