Buena Vista Social Club guitarist/singer Eliades Ochoa is one the living testaments to the universal popularity of Cuban 'son' music. Guitarist, singer and bandleader, Eliades Ochoa picked up his first instrument at the age of six years and by his early teens he was leader of the legendary group Cuarteto Patria.
Not long after, Elides Ochoa was recruited into the Buena Vista Social Club, where he became instantly recognizable worldwide for the recording and film of his performance of the traditional Cuban song "Chan Chan" with the late Compay Segundo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOwpkd2mMR0
Since that time Elides Ochoa and his group have toured over 40 countries, released several recordings, and keeping the sound of traditional Cuban 'son' music alive for audiences all over the world.
Last seen in Toronto at Massey Hall, this presentation in April sees Eliades Ochoa and his 6 piece group perform an intimate show in the recently renovated Art Deco Royal Theatre in Toronto's Little Italy area.
With limited of 400 seats only each night, these concerts will be a once-in-a-life-time-opportunity to see some of the finest 'son' music performed in a unique concert setting with fantastic sight-lines in all seats and a state of the art sound system.
Originally an art deco repertoire theatre, the Royal was rescued from the brink of extinction at the cost of 2.2 millions by film post-production company Theatre D Digital and it’s financial benefactors, and has now become one of the finest locations for live music presentations.
