La Linea Presents ELIADES OCHOA

The former Buena Vista Social Club™ frontman makes his solo debut at The Royal Albert Hall leading his own band. Known as “Mr Chan Chan” in his hometown of Santiago de Cuba, in recent years he combined performing with his own Grupo Patria with his role as a principal performer in the worldwide sold-out Adiós Tour with Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club.  His unique guitar and vocal style has made him a champion of the string and percussion driven son sound of Cuban country music.

“The finest guitarist of his generation.” The Guardian "A Cuban troubadour thrills the world stage." Los Angeles Times

Eliades’ set is followed by a rare screening of the new Buena Vista Social Club: Adios documentary directed by Lucy Walker including footage from the White House performance for Barack Obama and the group’s farewell tour. 

“Both an exemplary sequel and a vital, informative companion piece.” New York Times
