Cuban sonero Eliades Ochoa became world famous with Buena Vista Social Club. On the iconic self-titled debut album, Ochoa sings the classic song Chan Chan. But long before the Buena Vista hype, Ochoa already enjoyed great fame among lovers of Cuban music. He has been performing for decades with his backing band Cuarteto Patria and is one of the best guitarists of his generation. His main musical styles are guajira, guaracha and bolero. With his trademark cowboy hat and black clothes, he has also been called the “Cuban Johnny Cash.” Ochoa has various gold and platinum albums to his name and has received three American Grammy Award nominations. He has also worked with Bob Dylan, Manu Dibango and Bløf, among others. Ochoa's latest album is called Vamos A Bailar Un Son. On it he is joined by flamenco singer Argentina and the Cuban singer and poet Pablo Milanés.
