Limited Edition / Purple Vinyl / Remastered from the original analogue master tapes (2019)
Bearing the trademark of the most successful world music phenomenon of the era is the solo debut of Cuban singer Omara Portuondo. A key artist in the original Buena Vista sessions, Omara was among the most talked-about discoveries to emerge from the project, and has since - in her touring with Ibrahim Ferrer - established a name for herself as a performer to reckoned with. The alluring nostalgia of these romantic numbers, produced in Havana by Nick Gold, captures a lost era of music that has been resurrected by a new generation of music fans.
Omara Portuondo, the leading lady of the Buena Vista Social Club, is one of Cuba's most celebrated voices. The album Buena Vista Social Club Presents Omara Portuondo was released in 2000 in the wake of the phenomenal reception of the original Buena Vista Social Club album, and was remastered from the analogue tapes for its 2019 LP reissue. Omara is backed by a dream band formed of many of the original Buena Vista Social Club members including Ibrahim Ferrer (vocals), Rubén González (piano), Compay Segundo (guitar) and Orlando 'Cachaito' Lopez (bass).
