Lost and Found is a compilation album, and the third under the Buena Vista Social Club name, released on March 25, 2015 on World Circuit Records and Nonesuch Records. It is a mixture of leftover tracks from the Egrem studio sessions, and from a string of dates through the late 1990s and early 2000s, and live performances from the band in the years that followed.

Background

Following its release, the original Buena Vista Social Club album was an international best seller, and the most successful album in the history of Cuban music.[1] The band was also profiled in the film of the same name, directed by Wim Wenders, in which the Cuban musicians travelled to Amsterdam and New York City as a full line-up, the latter performance was recorded in 1998 and released as a live album in 2008. This newfound attention allowed solo albums to be recorded by Ibrahim Ferrer, Eliades Ochoa, Manuel "Guajiro" Mirabal, Jesús "Aguaje" Ramos, Omara Portuondo, Rubén González and Cachaíto López. Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, a core band featuring several of the original musicians, continued to sell out shows worldwide and embarked on a farewell "Adios" tour in 2015.[8][9]

When asked about a possible album of leftover tracks from the Egrem studio sessions, producer Nick Gold said:

Over the years we were often asked what unreleased material was left in the vaults. We knew of some gems, favourites amongst the musicians, but we were always too busy working on the next project to go back and see what else we had. When we eventually found the time, we were astonished at how much wonderful music there was.[1]
