Eliades Ochoa

Star of Buena Vista Social Club

The Star of Buena Vista Social Club, Eliades, makes a rare London appearance.

Eliades is known as Mr Chan Chan in his hometown of Santiago de Cuba, taken from the song that Compay Segundo gave to him when making his first recording. Eliades' unique guitar and vocal style have made him a champion of string and percussion driven traditions such as son, bolero and guaracha music styles. 

Eliades has just signed as a solo artist with World Circuit Records, the creators of Buena Vista Social Club. Their first release is a special reissue on 28 October of his 2020 album Vamos A Bailar Un Son, a new son masterpiece.
