Lulaworld kicks off with a night of Caribbean-infused jazz & funk from U.K., Cuban rock fusion and Latin urban/ rap from Montreal.
British trombonist Dennis Rollins, the founder of jazz funk fusion group Badbone and Co. joins us from Manchester, England to team up with local Cuban jazz trumpeter Alexis Baro. Later in the evening, Toronto-based Battle of Santiago combines Afro-Cuban rhythms and vocals with a distinctly Canadian post-rock spirit and sensibility. The night culminates in the much-anticipated return to TO by Sonido Pesao, an award-winning Montreal-based group that mixes Latin rhythms, rap & electro to create the explosive blend that can be heard on their latest album, Reir para no llorar. Sonido Pesao has been called “a Latin rhythm bomb with a contagious energy!”
Presented by Lula Music and Arts Centre with support from Toronto Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and The Government of Ontario.
