On the Avenida Independencia, San Telmo, Buenos Aires, 24-Jan-2013.

A lovely tribute to the legendary Cuban voice on the Avenida Independencia in San Telmo. Stopping to snap the pic also provided a good opportunity to clean the dog crap off the soles of my shoes. Come on, Porteños, it really is time to get that together, ok? My hostess and I thank you.

Here’s Portuondo with the Buena Vista Social Club in Buenos Aires in October 2011 at the nearby Luna Park.

    A voice that touches one’s heart. Beautiful painting as well.

    Ry Cooder brought the Buena Vista Social into the spot light with a wonderful hart warming movie.

      Indeed, a beautiful film on so many levels – sounds by Ry Cooder, images by Wim Wenders.
