One of the most important Cuban musicians of all time, the former Buena Vista Social Club frontman makes his solo debut at the Royal Albert Hall, fronting his own band.

A winner of several Latin Grammy nominations and awards, Ochoa is known as ‘Mr Chan Chan' in his hometown of Santiago de Cuba. In recent years he has combined performing with his own Grupo Patria with his role as a principal performer in the worldwide sold-out Adiós Tour with Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club.

His unique guitar and vocal style has made him a champion of the string and percussion-driven Cuban country music. At this special show he will be playing a special set adding hot brass into the swinging guitar and conga mix.

‘The finest guitarist of his generation.' The Guardian

One of the big nights at La Linea just got bigger. Eliades Ochoa's live set will now be followed by a rare screening of Lucy Walker's documentary, Adios: Buena Vista Social Club which includes footage from BVSC's global farewell tour.
