DE BUENA VISTA
The “Adiós Tour” was the last world tour of the Cuban orchestra Buena Vista Social Club®. Carlos Pericás was chosen to document the day to day of the band during the two and a half years in which they toured the stages of several continents saying goodbye. His camera testifies to the love that the iconic orchestra feels for their music and the love they receive from the crowd wherever they may be. Flights, buses, large halls and auditoriums, dressing rooms, hotels…
Everything that is not usually seen and the fans want to know.
That’s “El Adiós de Buena Vista”.
A small selection of 68 photos from more than 45.000 photos during 11 tours, 17 countries and more than 40 shows.
