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 leading his own band.Known as “Mr Chan Chan” in his hometown of Santiago de Cuba, in recent years he 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 Cuban string and percussion driven son sound of Cuban country music. Tonight he plays a special set adding hot brass into the swinging guitar and conga mix. Ochoa has received several Latin Grammy nominations and awards, and played for Barack Obama at a White House performance towards the end of his presidency. “The finest guitarist of his generation.” The Guardian "A Cuban troubadour thrills the world stage."
