Eliades Ochoa

1946 -

Origin: Cuba

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Blues, Latin

Hailed as a "Cuban Johnny Cash," Eliades Ochoa has an earthy sound and rustic style (topped off by his trademark cowboy hat) that is all his own. The Grammy-winning guitarist and singer was born in a rural mountain town, where he picked up his first tres guitar at age 6. He hasn't stopped playing since. The self-described "Guajiro" (Cuban provincial) offers piquant renditions of son, guararcha, bolero and changuï, resulting in memorable collaborations with Bob Dylan and, most famously, Buena Vista Social Club. In 2006, he released Se Solto un Leon, a reference to his first album, A Lion is Loose.
