Joachim took to the drums early on, and eventually played in the much acclaimed documentary, Buena Vista Social Club. He also worked behind the scenes, writing for the soundtracks of films such as Lars and the Real Girl.
In a sense, Cooder’s latest project, Love on a Real Train, blends his two passions and started out as a musical score to the sunset outside of his home in L.A. It features collaborations with Matt Costa, Inara George and other members of Cooder’s literal and figurative musical family. Cooder likes it to a soundtrack...without a film. Hear Cooder discuss Love on a Real Train and play live on this World Cafe session.
