Finally got around to seeing Buena Vista Social Club recently. A beautiful movie, with beautiful people. Made me not feel so bad about getting old.
Thanks so much— i needed that. Both my parents dfed in their early 60’s as well as my ex-husband. Me, I want to learn the banjo.
back at ya!
Yeah, one of those guys was 90 at the time the movie was made, another was in his 80’s, several in their 60’s and 70’s. Some of them hadn’t played or sang in ten years before Ry Cooder went to Cuba and re-discovered them. Truly remarkable, the resilience of the human spirit.
