Critical Acclaim

The story they tell, and tell well, is how the All Stars' songs ... first raise their own spirits, then those of their neighbors, then ... other camps too. The story told here is simple, and ultimately triumphant."

The New York Times

It's as easy to fall in love with these guys as it was with the Buena Vista Social Club."
