Buena Vista Social Club (and a live performance)

  • Coolidge Corner Theatre 290 Harvard Street Brookline MA 02446

Featuring a live musical performance from Italian violinist Ludovica Burtone and Brazilian guitarist Leandro Pellegrino, presenting their personal interpretation of some of the most famous Cuban melodies.

In this fascinating Oscar-nominated documentary, American guitarist Ry Cooder brings together a group of legendary Cuban folk musicians (some in their 90s) to record a Grammy-winning CD in their native city of Havana. The result is a spectacular compilation of concert footage from the group's gigs in Amsterdam and New York City's famed Carnegie Hall, with director Wim Wenders (Wings of DesireParisTexas) capturing not only the music -- but also the musicians' life stories.
