Buena Vista Social Club’s Eliades Ochoa
Band on the Wall (main venue)
Cuban sonero Eliades Ochoa became world famous with Buena Vista Social Club®. On the iconic self-titled debut album, Ochoa sings the classic song Chan Chan. But long before the Buena Vista hype, Ochoa already enjoyed great fame among lovers of Cuban music. He has been performing for decades with his backing band Cuarteto Patria and is one of the best guitarists of his generation.
His main musical styles are guajira, guaracha and bolero. With his trademark cowboy hat and black clothes, he has also been called the “Cuban Johnny Cash.” Ochoa has various gold and platinum albums to his name and has received three American Grammy Award nominations. He has also worked with Bob Dylan, Manu Dibango and Bløf, among others.
Eliades Ochoa is back this Spring with a whole set of new music, being released in May 2023. Expect nostalgia, with a contemporary twist.
This event is promoted by manchester jazz festival and Band on the Wall and is part of mjf2023
