Eliades Ochoa, who became famous worldwide in the late 1990s as a founding member of the Buena Vista Social Club, is "one of the best guitarists of his generation" (The Guardian), an iconic figure in Latin American music. Composer and performer of unmistakable songs such as "Píntate Los Labios Maria", "Chan Chan" or "El Cuarto de Tula", Ochoa's music is closely linked to the intense history of Cuba. A true keeper of tradition, Eliades Ochoa is the winner of numerous Latin Grammy Awards and one of the main characters in the 1999 Oscar-nominated documentary directed by Wim Wenders: Buena Vista Social Club.
Eliades Ochoa's concerts are considered a celebration of Latin American music and passion, full of melancholy, but also of joy and dance. His unique style of playing the guitar and vocals made him a superstar of traditional Cuban music.
Eliades Ochoa will perform with his band Grupo Patria at TIFF2022 on June 24, at Iulius Park Open Air. Tickets are on sale online. During the pre-sale period, until June 10, the price of a ticket is 70 lei.
