Not often do we witness a studio concert where the audience claps and sings, but Olvido Ruiz Castellanos and Lazara Cachao Lopéz together with guitarist Lars Stolley as "One Night of Buena Vista" enchanted the audience with the charm of their Cuban music. The pianist Lazara's father was a founding member of the "Buena Vista Social Club", of whom many songs were added to the repertoire, e.g. "Chan Chan", "El Carretero" and "Buena Vista Social Club". Olvido puts in a lot of character through her emotional singing and nostalgic descriptions of old Cuba. Another highlight of the evening was the duo between Lazara Cachao and her husband Lars Stolley on guitar with an original composition that she dedicated to him.

The concert was recorded by our sound engineer Johannes Wohlleben and is expected to be released as a CD by music publishing house Termidor.
