Thursday April 26, 2018, at 8 pm. $10. Call 905-543-8512 to reserve. Join us for a Latin American Peña Trova y Poesia, featuring Marcelo Puente and friends.
Marcelo Puente [is] one of the outstanding exponents of the “nueva cancion” tradition in this (or any) country. Marcelo Puente came to Toronto in the aftermath of the coup in Chile in 1973, bringing his songs and poetry. In the late seventies he co-founded the popular Chilean-Greek band Los Compañeros, a group of anti-fascist exiles who discovered a common musical language.” [Wally Brooker’s Music Notes Newsletter]
