Win Tickets For AfroCubism At The Bridgewater Hall

Win Tickets For AfroCubism At The Bridgewater Hall

FANS of Buena Vista Social Club are getting excited about this concert coming up at the Bridgewater Hall in June.

It promises to be an magical evening of wonderfully uplifting and joyous music.

AfroCubism was the original plan for the celebrated Buena Vista sessions. The idea, 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 so began the legend that became the multi-million selling Buena Vista Social Club.

Over a decade later, the Malians and Cubans finally got together to create AfroCubism – a thirteen piece all-star cast of world-class musicians, including Buena Vista original Eliades Ochoa and African star Toumani Diabate.

And on Sunday 3 June, AfroCubism will play a Band on the Wall fundraiser concert at the Bridgewater Hall. It promises to be a magical evening of wonderfully uplifting and joyous music.

Tickets cost £24.50 - £29.50 and are available from www.bridgewater-hall.co.uk / www.ticketwall.org / www.wefaceforward.org / or by calling 0161 907 9000.
