The former Buena Vista Social Club™ kingpin makes a rare London appearance and his first at the Barbican in more than ten years. Eliades played the first notes on his guitar at the age of six, and at twelve he walked around town singing what he had learned from the radio – the rest is eternal Cuban music history. His unique guitar and vocal style has made him a champion of string and percussion driven son, bolero and guaracha.
