Omara Portuondo in Buenos Aires – Pic du Jour

A lovely tribute to the legendary Cuban voice on the Avenida Independencia in San Telmo. Stopping to snap the pic also provided a good opportunity to clean the dog crap off the soles of my shoes. Come on, Porteños, it really is time to get that together, ok? My hostess and I thank you.

Here’s Portuondo with the Buena Vista Social Club in Buenos Aires in October 2011 at the nearby Luna Park.

    Ry Cooder brought the Buena Vista Social into the spot light with a wonderful hart warming movie.

      Indeed, a beautiful film on so many levels – sounds by Ry Cooder, images by Wim Wenders.
