Latin Peña: music and poetry with Marcelo Puente, Sat Oct 19

August 30th, 2019

Saturday October 19, 2019, at 8 pm, $15. Join us for a Latin American Peña (coffee house), an evening of poetry and music, 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]
