You will have about a million options for taking in Cuban music over the next few months, with Buena Vista Social Club and the Afro-Cuban All-Stars out on tour, but my vote would be to catch this show - as great as these other two 'supergroups' are, it strikes me that this style of music isn't really intended for the large theatre / auditorium venue, but for a more intimate club - like those where Mr. Ochoa is playing. He has apparently been one of the greats of Cuban guitar for sometime, but it wasn't until recently that we have been able to hear his work - most notably on the Buena Vista Social Club album. Isn't it more fun catching a show in a small venue anyhow? You'll have easier access to cerveza, at the very least...
