Wikipedia, Aug. 13, 2013 (Ryland Peter "Ry" Cooder; born March 15, 1947 in Los Angeles; musician. He is known for his slide guitar work, his interest in roots music from the United States, and, more recently, his collaborations with traditional musicians from many countries. Cooder has worked as a studio musician and has also scored many film soundtracks. In the late 1990s Cooder played a significant role in the increased appreciation of traditional Cuban music, due to his collaboration as producer of the Buena Vista Social Club (1997) recording, which became a worldwide hit and revived the careers of some of the greatest surviving exponents of 20th century Cuban music. In 2011, he published a collection of short stories)
