Buena Vista Social Club (1999)

In this fascinating Oscar-nominated documentary, American guitarist Ry Cooder brings together a group of legendary Cuban folk musicians (some in their 90s) to record a Grammy-winning CD in their native city of Havana. The result is a spectacular compilation of concert footage from the group's gigs in Amsterdam and New York City's famed Carnegie Hall, with director Wim Wenders capturing not only the music -- but also the musicians' life stories.

The movie Buena Vista Social Club, released in 1999, features 19 songs from artists like Omara Portuondo. What is your favorite song from Buena Vista Social Club?
