A very strange experience for us: the scene: Hamburg around 1940, inside a Swing-Club a party with dancing couples and outside the "normal life" in Hitler-Germany at this time! Hamburg's New Swing Generation was there and also us, the Swing DJ s from Herford.

The Old Masters: Live From Buena Vista!

Havanna's outskirt Buena Vista is synonymous for the Cuban musictradition since the mid 30`s. THE HAVANA LOUNGE is a congregation of traditional musicians from that place to be. We met the impressing old master of Son Pio Leyva, the heartful singer from Wim Wenders Music-docu „Buena Vista Social Club", a legend in its own right even in Cuba with his almost 87 years. Further singer-hero Julio Alberto Fernandez and trumpeter Yanko Pisaco from the Wenders movie, also Guillermo "Rubalcaba" Gonzales", Pianist from the Afro Cuban All Stars with Daniel Ramos Alayo, trumpeter of Afro Cuban All Stars.
