Iya Iré – Toronto’s own rumba troupe…
Sunday, January 20, 2013
Ring in the new year with iré! Open a new road, clear and clean, as we dust the path before us with the sounds of Toronto’s best Afro-Cuban folkloric group!
Join us for our straight-up back-breakin Afro-Cuban rumba at The Painted Lady! This ain’t The Buena Vista Social club, son! Come check out what Cubans are doing while you’re taking pictures of old American cars.
Picture it: the crumbling alleys of old Havana. As you wind your way through the oppressive heat and dodge hungry dogs, you follow a sound that reverbs in your chest- el tambor te llama! You arrive at a random space that has been converted into a ceremony of sound and sweat- and you can’t look away.
- Amazing venue, hot vibe, electrifying energy.
- Pay what you can (paga lo que puedas)
