Rediscovered Buena Vista Social Club Music Released on “Lost and Found”

The Buena Vista Social Club: Lost and FoundThe 1997 album, The Buena Vista Social Club, alerted many music fans to a world of Cuban music they may not have fully appreciated or even known about previously. The majority of the Buena Vista players were older at the time of the original, self-titled album’s release, with music careers prominent in the 1940s and 1950s. Sadly, many of those players have since died, including double bassist Orlando “Cachaíto” López, who passed away in 2009.

But — these musicians, who’s opened so many eyes and ears to the power of Cuban music, are still giving of themselves on the Buena Vista Social Club’s Lost and Found. The album is composed of some songs recorded in the same sessions that led to the collective’s 1997 watershed album, and some others from following years.

Here’s just a little taste of what these previously unreleased tracks offer:

Lost and Found is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
