An hour west of Toronto along the 401… a show from one of the best, Hilario Durán and the Havana Remembered orchestra.
Up Town Waterloo – Center for International Governance (CIGI)
located at the corner of Carolina St. and Erb St. (The former Seagram Museum Building)
Orlando Cardoso advises, he’s been booked with a band… small one, but packed with cuban talent… Currently with Josvanni singing, who we used to enjoy singing with Rubén Vázquez’ band… to play cuban dance music at Havana Nights, Ajax. About 10 pm … This FRIDAY gig is Cuban salsa, 50/50 with other Carribean dance music.
Before the dance music, Yosvanni and a Cuban friend bring around guitar, bongos, maracas and do songs from the “son” tradition of Cuba from table to table. Buena Vista Social Club songs a specialty, but try them for any you want to hear. And… the food is very good.
