The Buena Vista Social Club was a members’ club in Havana that held dances and musical activities, becoming a popular location for musicians to meet and play during the 1940’s. In the 1990’s, nearly 50 years after the club was closed, it inspired a recording made by Cuban musician Juan de Marcos Gonzalez and American guitarist Ry Cooder with traditional Cuban musicians, some of whom were veterans who had performed at the club during the height of its popularity.
The Buena Vista Social Club’s recording become a huge international success and inspired the famous director Wim Wenders. Wim Wenders documentary of the same name, in which he profiles the legendary Buena Vista Social Club musicians, recording their experiences as they perform in Cuba and abroad, was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary feature in 2000. It won as best documentary in the European Film Awards as well as many others.
Since then, the Group’s international popularity and recognition has increased rapidly and contributed to the revival of Cuban and Latin American music all over the world.
