To All Cuban music friends, As requested by you:
Press Release - Eliades Ochoa in Toronto for Concert
Buenavista Social Club guitarist/singer Eliades Ochoa is one the living testaments to the universal popularity of Cuban 'son' music.  Eliades Ochoa sold out two concerts at the Royal Theatre in April and will be at Lula Lounge for one exclusive concert August 20th, 2010.  Doors open at 7pm and concert starts at 9pm.  For more information, visit www.lula.ca.
Eliades Ochoa picked up his first instrument at the age of six years and by his early teens he was the lead director of the legendary group Cuarteto Patria. Not long after, Elides Ochoa was recruited into the Buenavista Social Club, where he instantly gained international legendary fame for recording and film of his performance of the traditional Cuban song "Chan Chan" with the late Compay Segundo. Ochoa’s roots are in guajira (Cuban country music) and his trademark cowboy hat and penchant for wearing black have led some to dub him “Cuba’s Johnny Cash”.

Since that time Elides Ochoa and his group have toured over 40 countries, released several recordings, and keeping the sound of traditional Cuban "son" music alive for audiences of all ages worldwide.
Eliades Ochoa enchanted with a wide receptive audience, returns to Toronto by popular demand.  He will be playing a more intimate concert at Lula Lounge, one of the best Latin American music venues that has promoted Cuban music and culture.  Lula’s excellent sound system and great Cuban vibe makes it the perfect venue for this show!  The audience can expect a great concert, dancing and a magnificent dining experience.  For more information www.lula.ca
