Step back in time to the tropical nightclubs of San Juan, Havana and beyond with this nostalgic collection of classic boleros, guajiras and more.
While Buena Vista Social Club shined a spotlight on Cuban music of the 1950s, Vintage Latino features some of the lesser-known but equally extraordinary music of that era by musicians from Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. It also includes other Cuban legends and respected trios who performed in cafés and brothels in pre-Castro Cuba.
