Cuban a cappella group coming to Nanoose Bay

Novel Voz will be performing at Nanoose Place on June 27

Novel Voz, an internationally renowned vocal jazz septet from Havana, Cuba, will be touring the province June 19 to July 17 with their B.C. Goodwill Tour with a stop in Nanoose Bay.

The a cappella group uses their voices to imitate the instruments such as percussion, strings and piano.

Novel Voz, who have been making music since 1999, is made up of four men and three women.

They have taken part in international festivals across Venezuela, Colombia, Canada, the U.K., France, Russia, Austria and more. They have recorded three CDs.

At the heart of Novel Voz’s repertoire is the Cuban music they’ve grown up with—son, chachacha, bolero and rumba. They also work with different rhythms, like samba and progressive tango, jazz classics and well-known international music.

Novel Voz will be at Nanoose Place (2925 Northwest Bay Rd., Nanoose Bay) on Monday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for teens. Children 12 and under get in for free.
