The Pender Harbour Music Society presents Zapato Negro this Sunday, Dec. 2 in a 2 p.m. show at the School of Music in Madeira Park.

This global blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz is perfect for a winter afternoon. Featuring musicians from Canada, Cuba, Venezuela and the U.S., the band's members have played this music at the highest level, making contributions of their own internationally to the music as a whole.

Zapato Negro has developed an eclectic and exciting concert repertoire that includes original compositions, underplayed jazz standards done in African rhythm, and classics of Latin music reworked, reharmonized or rerhythmicized in jazz.

You will be dancing in your seats.

Tickets are $25, available at Harbour Insurance in Madeira Park, John Henry's Marina in Garden Bay, the Sechelt Visitor Centre and Gaia's Fair Trade in Gibsons Landing.

See more on the group at www.zapatonegro.com and more about the season concert series at www.penderharbourmusic.ca.
