Buena Vista Social Club stars Eliades Ochoa and Omara Portuondo perform a special full live set in support of Voices for the Five, an international coalition of campaigners fighting for justice for the Miami Five.

The Cuban stars will be joined by guests from the Caribbean island and beyond including the acclaimed author of The Color Purple, Alice Walker, and René González, the first of the Miami five prisoners to have been released. Leading actors Frances de la Tour, Susan Wooldridge, Charlotte Cornwell, Adjoa Andoh, Sam West and Jonathan Pryce will bring to life the moving exchanges between the Cuban men and their loved ones back home during their long years of incarceration.

The Miami Five are five men who have been imprisoned in the United States for 15 years for their courageous fight to defend Cuba against terrorist attacks. Their case is supported by millions of people globally including politicians, academics, celebrities and Amnesty International.
