Buena Vista Social Club

Just noticed in the TV guide, SBS is re-running Buena Vista Social Club at 10pm tonight. I haven't seen it, but expect it's seriously groovy:
From acclaimed director, Wim Wenders, comes this extraordinary documentary about a group of Cuban musicians known as Los Superablos or, The Super Grandfathers. In 1996, Ry Cooder gathered together some of the greatest names in the history of Cuban music to collaborate on what became the best selling and Grammy winning album, Buena Vista Social Club. Inspired by these colourful characters and their extraordinary music, Wenders' film follows the musicians from Havana to Amsterdam and finally to Carnegie Hall in New York.
