Excerpt: Buena Vista Social Club is a studio album by Cuban bandleader and musician Juan de Marcos Gonzalez and American guitarist Ry Cooder with traditional Cuban musicians, released September 16, 1997 on World Circuit Records.

The musicians and the songs were later also featured in a documentary film of the same name.

Buena Vista Social Club earned considerable critical praise and has received numerous accolades from several music writers and publications. In 2003, the album was ranked number 260 on Rolling Stone magazines list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, one of only two albums on the list to be produced in a non-English speaking country.
