Afloran emociones en concierto de Marimba

Muchas emociones, recuerdos y sentimientos de nostalgia brotaron durante el Concierto de Marimba ejecutado el pasado fin de semana por la Marimba de Concierto de Bellas Artes de Guatemala en la escuela Bishop of Marrocco, de Toronto.

La apertura del programa estuvo a cargo del poeta y escritor guatemalteco Marco Castillo, quien declamó uno de sus poemas alusivos a la Marimba.

El evento, organizado por la Asociación Guatemalteca Canadiense, ASOGUATE, arrancó también lágrimas de alegría en muchas de las personas que se emocionaron al escuchar los temas que la agrupación interpretó ante un público que llenó las instalaciones del auditorio.

Esta fue la segunda vez que la Marimba de Concierto de Bellas Artes visitó Canadá. La primera vez fue en el mes de mayo de 2007, evento que dio origen a ASOGUATE, una entidad sin fines de lucro que desde entonces ha trabajado apoyando diversos proyectos educativos, sociales y culturales, tanto en Canadá como en Guatemala.

La gira arrancó en Montreal, bajo la coordinación de la Asociación de Guatemalatecos de Quebec, continuó en Ottawa y cerró con broche de oro acá en Toronto.

Cuando todos creían que el concierto terminaba y ante el aplauso insistente de los asistentes, los integrantes del grupo retornaron al escenario para interpretar algunos de los mas emblemáticos temas en marimba: Luna de Xelajú, y el Grito, melodías que fueron entonadas al unísono por la concuerrencia.

Durante el intermedio los asitentes disfrutaron también de variados platillos típicos Guatemaltecos. Los organizadores agradecieron el apoyo de Pupusería Salvadorena, Panadería Quetzal, Paralegal Carlos Perdomo, Radio Voces Latinas y Liliana Armas de All Risks Insurance quienes, junto a los voluntarios, hicieron de este espectáculo una noche inolvidable.

An Outcropping of emotions during Marimba Concert

Many emotions, memories, and sentiments of nostalgia overflowed during the Marimba concert undertaken this past weekend by the Marimba de Concierto de Bellas Artes of Guatemala at Bishop Marrocco secondary School in Toronto.

The Guatemalan writer and poet, Marco Castillo was in charge of opening the program who professed one of his poems allusive of the Marimba.

The event, organized by the Guatemalan Canadian Association, ASOGUATE, also evoked tears of joy in many of the people who became emotional upon hearing the themes that the group interpreted before the gathering of people that filled the auditorium.

This was the second time that the Marimba de Bellas Artes de Guatemala visited Canada. The first time was in the month of May of 2007, an event that gave birth to ASOGUATE, a non profit entity, who since then has worked to support various educational, social, and cultural projects, in Canada and Guatemala alike.

The tour started in Montreal, under the coordination of the Guatemalan Association of Quebec, continued in Ottawa, and closed with a perfect finish here in Toronto.

When everyone thought the concert was coming to an end and under the insistent applause of those in attendance, the group members returned to the stage to interpret some of the most emblematic themes in Marimba ; Luna de Xelajú, and el Grito, melodies that were sung in unison by the audience.

During the intermission, those in attendance also enjoyed various traditional Guatemalan dishes. The organizers thank the support of Pupusería Salvadorena, Panadería Quetzal, Paralegal Carlos Perdomo, Radio Voces Latinas and Liliana Armas of All Risks Insurance who, together with the volunteers, made this spectacle and unforgettable night.

Con un desborde de alegría los guatemaltecos y sus amigos celebraron el pasado sábado su tradicional Convivio Navideño en el Jamaican Canadian Community Center de Toronto.

El local quedó corto ante la numerosa asistencia que se hizo presente para participar en el evento, en el que se recaudaron los fondos necesarios que serán utilizados para comprar los útiles escolares que serán donados en enero próximo a los niños sobreviviventes del deslave que afectó en octubre pasado a la comunidad de El Cambray 2, en las afueras de la capital guatemalteca y que dejó mas de 280 víctimas mortales.

Los asistentes difrutaron de la música de Sonido Santana pero especialmente de la interpretación del Mariachi Azteca, cuyos integrantes interpretaron las tradicionales rancheras, ademas de temas muy conocidos por los guatemaltecos como Escuintla, Luna de Xelajú y Soy de Zacapa, entre otros.

Además de la música, los asistentes disfrutaron del tamal y ponche chapín, así como de otros platillos netamente guatemaltecos como los tacos y rellenitos, sin faltar la tradicional pupusa salvadoreña.

Este es el noveno año consecutivo que ASOGUATE realiza este donativo en favor de los niños mas necesitados en Guatemala, como parte de su Proyecto de apoyo a la educación en el país.

Paraleleo al evento de ASOGUATE, un grupo de personas realizó la venta de flores y chocolates en favor de la señora Gladis Araceli Recinos, quien ha sido diagnosticada con cáncer y no cuenta con la cobertura de OHIP.

El éxito del evento se debió también al apoyo de Liliana Armas, de All State Insurance; del paralegal Carlos Perdomo y la Pupusería Salvadoreña.

With an overflow of happiness, Guatemalans and their friends celebrated, this past Saturday, their traditional Christmas Celebration at the Jamaican Canadian Community Center of Toronto.

The venue could not cope with the number of people that attended, during which the funds raised will be utilized to buy school supplies and will be donated next January, to the children survivors of the land slide, this past October that affected the El Cambray 2 community, on the outskirts of the Guatemalan Capital that caused more than 280 fatalities.

Those in attendance enjoyed the music of Santana Sound, but especially, the performance by Mariachi Group Azteca, whose members interpreted traditional ranchera songs, in addition to those very well known by Guatemalans like Escuintla, Luna de Xelaju and Soy de Zacapa, among others.

Besides the music, those in attendance enjoyed the Chapin tamal and ponche, as well as other distinctly Guatemalan dishes like tacos and rellenitos, including the traditional Salvadorean pupusa.

This was the ninth consecutive year that ASOGUATE organized this fundraiser in benefit of the children most in needs in Guatemala, part of their educational support project in the country.

In parallel with the event, a group of persons sold flowers and chocolates to support Ms. Gladis Araceli Recinos, who has been diagnosed with cancer but does not qualify for OHIP health coverage.

The success of the event was also due to the support from Liliana Armas of All State Insurance; paralegal Carlos Perdomao and the Salvadorean Pupuseria.

ASOGUATE entrega donativo a víctimas del derrumbe

Conmovidos ante la tragedia ocurrida la semana pasada en la colonia El Cambray 2 de Santa Catarina Pínula, Guatemala, la Asociación Guatemalteca Canadiense, ASOGUATE, entrego ayer un donativo en beneficio de los más damnificados de esa comunidad.

El donativo, entregado por nuestros amigos Mónica Recinos, Antonio Duque y Alejandro González en el Centro de acopio de la parroquia La Villa, zona 10, consistió en pañales desechables, artículos de aseo personal, sabanas y víveres, entre otros.
La donación fue hecha gracias al apoyo de guatemaltecos y amigos que participan en los diferentes eventos organizados por ASOGUATE, una entidad sin fines de lucro que opera con voluntarios en Toronto desde 2007.

Las personas interesadas en colaborar pueden comunicarse con la agrupación al teléfono 905-796-9963 o por medio de www.asoguate.com. ASOGUATE estará haciendo una segunda donación en los próximos días, para lo cual esperamos contar con su colaboración a fin de hacerla lo más grande posible.
