Omara Portuondo To Make Rare U.S. Appearances

Omara Portuondo, the world renowned vocalist who began her career in the music scene of her native Cuba in the 1940s, has been granted a travel visa to perform in the United States for two very special dates in October. A member of the celebrated Buena Vista Social Club, Omara is one of the first Cuban artists in six years to obtain a visa to perform in the U.S.

Portuondo will perform at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco on October 20, as part of the 2009 San Francisco Jazz Festival. Later that same week, she will perform on the campus of UCLA on Friday, October 23.
