Vancouver, BC….Railtown Cultural Eclective, brings Orchestra Familia to their Trier Performance Series at the Orpheum Annex, Wednesday, October 9 at 8pm.

The well loved Rio Samaya Band with leaders Fransisco Pace (vocals, guitar, charango, ukeleles, quena and flutes) and Sal Pace (vocals, accordion and percussion) have merged with sought after Bocephus King (vocals, lead guitar percussion), Wynston Minckler (bass), Charlie Hase (pedal steel, dobro), Paul Townsend (drums, vocals), Persian wizard Ali Razmi (tar, setar, saz),  Colin "Tutuks" Maskell (baritone, soprano and tenor sax, flute and vocals) and Ja Pace (dancer, percussion, saw) to create Orchestra Familia. 

Together, they have developed a unique voice of a multi-cultural community.  Their spirited rhythms, gypsy grooves and dynamic tunes will take you on a journey across the globe, through its deserts, forests, and busy streets.  Their original, classical and new music has a refreshing personality and celebrates the world coming together.

The members of Orchestra Familia come from all corners of the earth but fate has gathered them together in Vancouver, British Columbia.  They have all played in various configurations, in myriad venues, in a town known for its multicultural diversity.  But something happens with this particular unit that defies description.  They can take you to that "OTHER PLACE" so quickly, so consistently and so joyously…..you'll be transformed!

Orchestra Familia performs Wednesday, October 9 at 8pm at the Orpheum Annex, 823 Seymour Street.  Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $20 Adults/ $15 students, seniors and arts workers and available at www.northerntickets.com . For more information email info@railtownce.ca or call 604-836-9943.
