RIO MIRA
Sunday, June 23, 7:30 p.m.
The Cedar Cultural Center
416 Cedar Avenue South
Fronted by singer Karla Kanora, Rio Mira is an exciting recording collaboration between artists from neighbouring Ecuador and Colombia, and is guided by the distinctive percussive tones of the marimba. Taking its name from the river which runs from Ecuador into Colombia, the band is living proof of the rich history of the northwesterly Pacific coast. Recalling the history of the Pacific, the music is a reminder of the unity which binds together a region divided up by state borders.
In 2015, UNESCO declared the marimba music of South Pacific Colombia and Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador to be Intangible Cultural Heritage.
This is a standing show with an open floor.
All Ages – $16 Advance or $18 day of show
