Zocalo goes Cuban Thursday

Music by the Zandhunga trio starts 7 p.m.

Locally-based multi-instrumentalist Oscar Robles Diaz plays the Zocalo Café on the third Thursday of each month. Showcasing his skills on nylon-stringed acoustic guitar, he will present music from Cuba as well as from several other Latin-American countries including Colombia, Puerto Rico and his native country of Mexico.

Joining him for tonight’s performance are two musicians from the Zandhunga collective – Tony Morrison on flute and saxophones and Britt Bowman on bass and percussion.

Music by the Zandhunga trio starts 7 p.m. and is by pass-the-hat donation with all proceeds going to the musicians. The Zocalo Café is on 5th Street at the corner of Cliffe Avenue.

Call 250-331-0933 for more information.
