Revisit with the remaining original members of the Buena Vista Social Club and explore their contribution to the unknown history of Cuba.

The musicians of the Buena Vista Social Club exposed the world to Cuba's vibrant culture with their landmark 1997 album. Now, against the backdrop of Cuba’s captivating musical history, hear the band’s story as they reflect on their remarkable careers and the extraordinary circumstances that brought them together.

NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' PICK "Buena Vista Social Club: Adios is both an exemplary sequel and a vital, informative companion piece. It not only chronicles the late-life careers of the “Buena Vista” stars, many of whom have since died. But it also tells some painful and fascinating back stories, too, and insists on putting the music in its social and historical contexts." - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
