After gaining international fame for reviving the classic sound of Cuban son, Juan de Marcos, the master and founder of the Buena Vista Social Club, turned the Afro-Cuban All Stars into a sensational showcase for Cuba's most prodigious young and senior musicians. Known internationally for its album A Toda Cuba le Gusta, the Afro-Cuban All Stars features a rotating, multi-generational cast and draws on both classic and Cuban styles like son and danzón and contemporary dance rhythms like timba. Embracing several generations and all musical styles, this unique orchestra has always been devoted to performing the full range of Cuban music.
