My Hispanic Heritage Month cavalcade of FREE MP3s has been skimpy on Cuban music. I know this.
So here’s one from “Buena Vista Social Club at Carnegie Hall,” a double-CD that’ll be released next week.
Click here to hear “De Camino a la Vereda” on my Vox blog. To download it, click the song title below.
“Buena Vista Social Club,” of course, was the title of a 1997 album (conceived by producer Ry Cooder) and a 1999 documentary (by German filmmaker Wim Wenders) which together shined a worldwide spotlight on Afro-Cuban music.
The new double-CD documents the 1998 New York City concert which was featured at the end of the movie.
