Buena Vista Social Club posterThere's a poignant scene near the end of Wim Wenders' documentary 'Buena Vista Social Club' in which legendary Cuban singer Ibrahim Ferrer is strolling the streets of Manhattan for the first time, at the age of 72. As he gazes in awe at buildings many times taller than the tallest in Havana you can feel his sense of wonderment and, like him, you can't help but smile, not for the sight of skyscrapers, but because you're happy that he's happy.
