Juan De Marcos Gonzalez

GonzalezMarch 2000

Juan de Marcos Gonzalez organized and leads both the Buena Vista Social Club and the Afro-Cuban All Stars. The music he produces combines a number of styles, including classic son montuno, contemporary timba, swinging big band guarjira, Afro-Cuban jazz danzon, and the tribal rhythms of abakua bolero. Both bands are Grammy nominees, and Wim Wender's film about the Buena Vista Social Club received an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary.
