Special Tribute to Buena Vista Social Club with Pepito Gomez
Why Gomez deserves to have a whole sextet named after him: He’s a world-traveling Cuban singer praised by the New York Times for a voice they’ve described as “a beneficent alarm, a positive shout.”
What else the Times has said about him: He’s “another order of performer” who makes his “band members look at one another in astonishment and play harder.”
Other famous Cuban groups he’s graced: Guasabara, Pupy y los que Son Son
Who the sextet will be paying tribute to at this concert: the Buena Vista Social Club
Why they might be inclined to do that (besides the universal appeal of the Club’s golden-age Cuban tunes): Member Omara Portuondo is a high-profile fan of Gomez’s pipes.
