Fiesta on the plaza
In celebration of the Chan Centre’s 2018/19 season opening concert, we’re pleased to host a mini fiesta on the plaza just outside the front doors of the Chan Centre. Join us in advance of the Aida Cuevas concert for a mouth-watering Veracruz-style treat provided by the Mexican food truck Marimba, and enjoy the spirited sounds of local ensemble Breaking Boundaries.
Breaking Boundaries is an ensemble that embodies the passion and vitality of Latin music. Led by Colombian accordionist John Gonzalez, it also features Marco Antonio (Mexico) on timbales, Eric Ramirez (Mexico) on congas, Joendris Estrada (Cuba) on trombone, and Alan Ruiz (Colombia) on bass.
The Marimba food truck is known for its delicious Veracruz-style Mexican cuisine. It can usually be found parked outside the Vancouver Art Gallery, but is making the journey out to UBC to welcome Mexico’s Queen of Mariachi to Vancouver!
