GRUPO COMPAY SEGUNDO

The heritage of Cuban sound wealth, the one that everyone has learned to recognize and appreciate in the movie “Buena Vista Social Club”, which in the name preserves and passes on the work of a musician who became familiar to the general public thanks to the cult movie by Wim Wenders . The current formation, nine elements, was defined by Compay in person shortly before he died, in 2003, with the mission to spread his music around the world.
In addition to one of his sons, Salvador is the group’s art director, as well as two other musicians who participated in the film that made them famous to the general public.
While holding concerts around the world, they maintain their usual commitment to play in the 1930 Salon (now Salon Compay Segundo) at the Hotel Nacional de La Habana.
The Group ensures fun and rhythm with an evergreen repertoire that includes absolute classics like “Macusa”, “Bilongo”, “Veinte”.
