Ladies night live Part 1

Over the years, the Concertzender has recorded many performances by female musicians from around the world. In part 1 of Ladies Night-life, you have the opportunity to hear the complete recordings of a number of these concerts, some of which have not been broadcasted before.

On July 27th of this year the 82 year-old Omara Portuondo performed together with the 67 year-old Eliades Ochoa and the Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. These stars from Cuba are the only original members of the BVSC that are still alive. The show lasted two and a quarter hours, much longer than the one and a half hours originally planned. This celebration of Cuban music ends with ‘Candela’ which Portuondo continues to sing as she leaves the stage.
