Seventeen years ago, the Oscar-nominated documentary “Buena Vista Social Club” chronicled the titular Cuban members’ club, which spawned a crew of musicians who recorded an album of the same name. Opening May 26, a new movie will revisit the band members on their farewell tour, and the ups and downs they experienced in the intervening years.
HuffPost has an exclusive clip from “Buena Vista Social Club: Adios” in which one of the group’s spirited veterans gives a tour of the old venue. He stresses the institution’s importance: “This is the place where It used to be, the society for black people.” Thanks to Lucy Walker’s documentary, this piece of Havana history will get the send-off it deserves.
