What you'll do

Do you want to live one of the most legendary and authentic moments of Cuban music? This is a great opportunity to guarantee in advance your ticket to one of the most emblematic concerts (repertoire) in Cuba: the Buena Vista Social Club Tribute.

Winners of a Grammy Award, it has been the Cuban musical phenomenon that has led the rich Cuban "Son" all over the world. You will see that legendary repertoire and show from the golden age of Cuban music of the 40s and 50s, by an actually orchestra integrated by the most experienced musicians (the legends still alive from that glorious era) where you can DANCE the best traditional music of this island.

First we will meet my friends Amalia or Victor (two passionates about Cuban music) in one of my favorite bars in Old Havana, a special place where we can share a lemonade or juice, while we meet each other. There we will talk about Cuban music and our cultures.

Then we will walk to the second location where you will have reserved a table entitled to dinner and 3 Cuban drinks to enjoy one of the most coveted SHOWS in the world: Buena Vista Social Club Show.
After the event we will make sure of your comfort and give you the best tips to return at the end.

*I recommend wearing fresh clothes since Cuba is a hot country
*One day in the week we have a special offer for only $10. IF YOU BOOK THIS OFFER you must bring $50 in cash, per person
Other things to note
Arrival or return transportation is NOT guaranteed, but we will give you the best tips about it.

We will walk approximately 500 meters between the first place and the second place, and climb stairs in second place.

If you booked the day with an offer for only $10, then you must bring $50 in cash.

From small we love music, and all the universe that is created around it. Personally, it has been so much so that I decided to study it for 10 years and to this day I am a musicologist graduated from the University of the Arts of Cuba.

I meet Amalia while I worked for one of the most important music festivals in the country, she is a lawyer and it turned out that she also sings very well!!

While studying music at the academy, I met Victor, an excellent saxophonist who currently studies Tourism at the University of Havana.

We love discovering music in any corner that is. We have participated in the Production Committee of important Festivals in Havana such as the Leo Brouwer Chamber Music Festival and the Jazz Plaza Festival.

We will share this passion with you and you will be able to see Cuban music from another perspective ;-)

Where you'll be

We will meet at an intimate "bar particular" near the Capitol in Old Havana.

We will walk through the Parque de la Fraternidad to reach the last place: an authentic Cultural Society, located on the top floor of a very special building, where you will enjoy the Buena Vista show, Cuban cocktails and dinner (typical cuban food).
In this last place you will have to climb a few meters of stairs.
I recommend wearing fresh clothes.

Incredible experience! I’m very fortunate to have taken it. Rocío is very knowledgeable and passionate about her culture’s music and history. Very friendly and attentive host. I believe this was better than other more commercial experiences not just because of the great price but because of the authenticity. Highly recommended! The music was incredible! Thank you Rocío!

Rocio has a gift for sharing her passion for Cuban music and tradition. One of the best parts was hearing her talk about the music beforehand. She is so full of life and helps everyone have a fun time. An amazing experience!
