A Journey Across Latin America – CANTO VIVO IN CONCERT

June 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for an enchanting journey across Latin America through the voices and rhythms of CANTO VIVO, the Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre choir. Savour early twentieth-century Buenos Aires in the words of Jorge Luis Borges and the music of Astor Piazzolla; travel to the magical Atacama Desert of Chile and the wondrous Andes Mountains on the wings of cachimbos and huayños; let your feet fly and your hips sway to the pulse of Colombian cumbias and Cuban sons and guarachas; travel to lush Veracruz with the lyrics and beats of Mexican Natalia Lafourcade; dream of poetry and butterflies with the words and melodies of Uruguay’s Jorge Drexler; feel the pain of exile through the songs of Colombian Marta Gómez and Chilean Julio Numhauser; meet a crafty, mythical diablo in the form of a Venezuelan joropo; join Cuba’s Silvio Rodríguez in his musings on the role of the artist; and let your heart swell with the bossa nova of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

A JOURNEY ACROSS LATIN AMERICA: CANTO VIVO IN CONCERT will be an unforgettable evening. And that’s a promise!

Over the years, CANTO VIVO has participated in a variety of group events in venues such as the Vancouver Public Library, the Vancouver Convention Centre, and The Annex.
