Buena Vista Social Club by Wim Wenders( Visual )

8 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in Spanish and English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Como ha ocurrido con casi todos los descubrimientos trascendentales de la humanidad, éste también fue el resultado inesperado de una búsqueda que apuntaba a un objetivo diferente. Suponiendo que en los estudios Egrem, de La Habana, Cuba, iba a encontrarse con cierta corriente musical enraizada en sonidos netamente africanos, Ry Cooder se topo con un grupo de leyendas olvidadas del son y la fusión cubanas. El resultado de este hallazgo fue el resurgimiento musical más importante y conmovedor de la música contemporánea."--Envase

Lost and found by Buena Vista Social Club (Musical group)( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost two decades after the release of the original, Grammy-winning album, the romance of the Buena Vista Social Club continues with Lost and Found, a collection of previously unreleased tracks, some recorded at the first legendary sessions in Havana with producer Ry Cooder and others during the extraordinarily rich outpouring of music that followed. The original Buena Vista Social Club album was recorded by World Circuit Records over seven days in Havana in 1996, bringing together many of the great names of the golden age of Cuban music in the 1950s, several of whom were coaxed out of retirement for the sessions. The album became a surprise international best-seller and the most successful album in the history of Cuban music. At the time, nobody had any idea that the record was merely the start of a musical phenomenon. In the years that followed the Buena Vista veterans toured the world and were the subject of a celebrated feature film directed by Wim Wenders. Further recordings followed, including acclaimed solo releases from its stars and a live album recorded at a triumphant concert at New York's Carnegie Hall. Buena Vista Social Club had become a household name. A core band featuring several of the original musicians continue to sell out shows world-wide as Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. They embark on their farewell 'Adios' tour in 2015. "Over the years we were often asked what unreleased material was left in the vaults," says World Circuit's Nick Gold. "We knew of some gems, favourites amongst the musicians, but we were always too busy working on the next project to go back and see what else we had. When we eventually found the time, we were astonished at how much wonderful music there was." All the studio tracks were recorded at the Egrem studio in Havana during the rich and prolific period of creativity that followed the recording of the original album in 1996 and stretched into the early 2000s. Spiced with live recordings from the same fertile period, there's a tremendous and sometimes surprising variety to the material heard on Lost and Found. But there is a unifying thread built around a core collective of legendary musicians expressing an esprit de corps which everyone who was ever enchanted by Buena Vista Social Club will recognise and enjoy

Echu mingua by Miguel Angá( Recording )

2 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his explosive soloing and inventive five conga patterns, Cuban musician Miguel 'Anga' Da̕z is one of the world's great congueros. 'Echu Mingua', his debut album as a bandleader, is an innovative set that combines a diverse range of styles and influences. At the heart of this album is a concept that has been referred to as rumbadelica. By bringing together an extraordinary range of elements including traditional Cuban and African music, Latin jazz, hip-hop, symphonic music, contemporary tango, and blending them in the 'Cuban way', 'Echu Mingua' is a unique sounding record that only Anga could have made. Featuring the great Cachat̕o Lp̤ez on bass, Malian griot Baba Sissoko, pioneering French DJ Dee Nasty, Magic Malik on flute, and virtuoso Cuban pianists Chucho Valdes, and Rubň Gonzl̀ez, Ang ̀continues to defy categorization
