Buena Vista Social Club – Chan Chan

I posted AfroCubism, so I had to post this. In my admittedly somewhat limited experience with Latin music, I have not found a better group than Buena Vista Social Club. They are (or were, in some cases – RIP Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, and Rubén González) all fantastic musicians, and had a chemistry that was unmatched. This video exhibits both perfectly, as well as showing some clips from Buena Vista Social Club, the documentary made about their reunion (it’s a beautiful film, should be watched by anyone who loves music). To this day, nobody looks better in a Panama suit than Compay Segundo did.
