The Star of Buena Vista Social Club makes a rare London appearance.
Eliades is known as Mr Chan Chan in his hometown of Santiago de Cuba, from the song that Compay Segundo gave to him to make its first recording. His unique guitar and vocal style have made him a champion of string and percussion driven son, bolero and guaracha.
Eliades has just signed as a solo artist with World Circuit Records, the creators of Buena Vista Social Club. Their first release is a Special Reissue on 28 October of his 2020 album Vamos A Bailar Un Son, a new son masterpiece which got somewhat lost when it first came out during The Special Times.
