Fiesta Cubana - New Year's Eve Concert 2009 from Havana

Omara Portuondo and Band Tropicana Ballet and Orchestra

The turn of 2009/2010 has been celebrated with an extraordinary New Year's Concert from Havana: with Caribean salsa-rhythms and classics of Cuban music, the new year has been welcomed. Also on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the TROPICANA Club, the 'cabaret of dreams', the turn of the year has been a special event to all of its artists. Highlights of the evening are the performances of Omara Portuondo who gained international stardom as the singer of the "Buena Vista Social Club". She started her career at the TROPICANA in 1945. Therefore, the jubilee is a very special event that she celebrates with her friends and the fabulous TROPICANA artists. The most sweeping selection of Cuban and Latin-American classics that brings a very special evening to TV audiences around the world!
