Eliades Ochoa was born in 1946 and started playing guitar when he was six. He made some money for his family playing in cafés in Cuba. Besides being a member of Buena Vista Social Club, Ochoa was a part of a ton of other musical projects, including the album CubAfrica which came uit in 1998 together with Manu Dibango. Many albums and Grammy nominations, Ochoa is still seen as a key figure of the traditional Cuban music and one of the best guitarists of his generation.

Tijdens het concert geniet Ochoa intens van de ambience die hij losmaakt. Alsof je bij hem thuis vertoeft praat hij de nummers in Spaans dialect aan elkaar. Open doekjes, spontane gilletjes en driftig dansende duos op het podium verhogen de feeststemming.
