About Rhythm and Cello

Rhythm and Cello is a Vancouver music duo

About the Rio Samaya Band (from

Based in Vancouver, the Rio Samaya Band is made up of Pancho and Sal, partners in life as well as in music, which is full of wonderfully enchanting latin rhythms and romantic melodies in Spanish including some Italian, English and French folk songs. With a style that flows through the folkloric traditions of Central and South America,  Rio Samaya music beats to the natural pulse of our planet, writing and  blending it with elements of folk, country, and reggae, as well as the rhythms from Gypsies in the south of France.

Sal grew up playing accordion in Vancouver but has roots in Argentina, sings ethereal harmonies and plays hand percussion instruments. They have a unique style of translating simultaneously from Spanish to English. Guitar, bombo, chachas, accordion, quena, flute, harmonica, piano, charango and ukulele are just some of the instruments they play.  Together they create a gentle and compelling sound.

Buffet Dinner

Prepare for a fantastic dinner – the buffet will be provided by Di Reggae Cafe and Chef Daniel Restaurant. Have a peek at their respective menus to get an idea about what you’re in for, but don’t blame us if your mouth starts to water!
