Omara Es Cuba - El Ltimo Beso

July

28

Sunday

The multi-talented singer from Buena Vista Social Club brings cubana to life with an evening of expressive music, mixing traditional bolero with jazz and blues.

With an artistic career spanning decades, Omara Portuondo is renowned for popularising Cuban music across the world. As part of the her El ltimo Beso tour, Portuondo will showcase some of her finest musical work. Having originally carved a career as an actor in 1950s Havana, Portuondos live show is inspired by expression. Her gestures match her vast vocal range, inherited from the filin way of singing which mixes traditional bolero with American-influenced blues.

A seminal member of the Havana music scene, Portuondo has collaborated with some of the most important Cuban musicians to date, including Julio Gutirrez and Chucho Valds. She remains a figurehead of the local Havana music scene.
