MATICES DEL SUR

Matices Del Sur is a Vancouver based band committed to promote authentic music from the coast of Peru which is strongly rooted in the rich, diverse and festive creole and Afro-Peruvian music.
Matices Del Sur arises as an initiative of enthusiactic peruvian musicians with the desire to bring the creole and Afro-Peruvian music to the Vancouver audience.

The band performed for the first time in Vancouver for the celebration of the Peruvian Independence Day in July 2012 and since then it has continued its work as a promoter of the National Peruvian Music. The vocals in their performances blend beautifully with the sound of the guitars and the peruvian cajón and invite all the audiences of different cultures to an imaginary trip to the coast of Peru to share part of their cultural heritage through the happiness and beauty of their music

FORRO DO CANA

Vancouver’s premier Brazilian Forro band, Forró do Cana, was founded in 2018 as a passion project, dedicated to the dissemination of the music of Northeastern Brasil. The music of Forró do Cana blends the sounds of the violin (and sometimes the Brazilian fiddle aka. rabeca) and accordion played by Serena Eades and Steve Charles respectively, with the Brazilian roots of Mario Silva’s 7 string acoustic guitar and Sara Magal’s percussion and all Portuguese vocals. A rotating cast of incredible percussionists include Vancouver’s top go-to players of Brazilian music: Liam MacDonald, Celso Machado and Phil Belanger.

For those not familiar with Forró, this is a partner dance with a variety of rhythms and accompanying steps from very intricate and showy to subtle and sensual. A whole family of related rhythms are referred to under the umbrella term Forró: Baião, Forró, Xaxado, Xote and Arrasta pé. Arrasta pé (“drag your foot“) received its name due to the peculiar dancing movement: the soles of the feet drag over the floor with each dance step. Forró is a lively, accentuated Baião. And as you will have noticed, not only the name of the genre, but a specific rhythm within the genre, as well as the name of the festivity at which its music is played and danced (“Let’s go to the Forró!). Both the rhythms of Baião and Forró formed the guideline for the emergence of the Lambada. Xote is a slower rhythm with a very special swing, inspired by Polka and Mazurka

ROBIN LAYNE & THE RYTHM MAKERS

Over the past eight years Robin Layne has become a regular fixture on the B.C. festival circuit, collaborating with a wide spectrum of folk and world artists. His recent touring engagements have led him to Mexico, Italy, China, the U.S. and Canada. He has followed his love of world music to Cuba, Guinea, Mali, and Mexico studying under master drummers and marimbists of those respective traditions. He currently performs with world music groups Locarno, Tambura Rasa, and Mazacote. Equally at home on stage or in a classroom, Robin is the senior percussion instructor at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music and the Artistic Director of the Britannia World Rhythms for Youth Society.
