FRIDAY, JUNE 14
OLD MARKET SQUARE
Trio Bembe’s mastery of Latin music drives their audiences into a rhythmic frenzy. Amber Epp discovered her Latin soul upon moving to Cuba, singing in the open-air patios of Old Havana. She has an amazing ability to convey the meanings of songs in numerous languages. Rodrigo Muñoz’s individual style on the guitar brings a rhythmic uplift to the harmonic side of Trio Bembe; and his laid-back, humorous personality immediately welcomes audiences into his world. Scott Senior’s journey is uncovered through the instruments he plays: the pandeiro from Brazil, the congas from Cuba, the cajón from Peru. Trio Bembe’s album Oh My Soul won the 2011 Western Canadian Music Award for World Music Recording of the Year.
