About AfroCubism

AfroCubism was the original idea for Buena Vista Social Club. The plan conceived in 1996 was to bring the foremost Cuban musicians and their Malian counterparts together to record in Havana and explore their shared musical history.  As it turned out the Malians couldn't make it to Cuba so an exclusively Cuban album was recorded instead and thus began the legend that became the Buena Vista Social Club.

14 years later, this 13-piece all-star cast of musicians that is AfroCubism including African superstar Toumani Diabaté and Buena Vista hero Eliades Ochoa finally got together and recorded. Described as "A cross-cultural tour-de-force by the maestros" by The Financial Times, AfroCubism bridges the continents with music that flows and sparkles throughout.
