SOTA Tuesday Lunchtime Concerts: SANTERIAS
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 | 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Concert Hall, LR Wilson Building

Toronto Urban Latin ensemble and winner of the title of Best of ‘Play the Parks’ in 2017, continues to fire up funk fusion with their new video and single “Hurricane” about to be released. The word Santerías represents a cultural fusion where dance and music are fundamental ingredients for healing. This Toronto group proposes the use of their dynamic and upbeat style of music, coined by them as RUMBAFUNK, as a universal healing language. Some songs bring in Latin rhythms while some embrace a Brazilian Tropicália sensibility, but all of them get bathed in a vibrant mixture of pop and funk aesthetics. Ana Lía Arias Garrido (Dominican Republic) on lead vocals, Juan Dino Toledo (Chile) on guitar and backing vocals, and Oriana Barbato, (Chile) on bass and backing vocals, are the core of this musical superpower. They have a roster of guest musicians and most recently; Randolf Jimenez (Venezuela), has been put in charge of the rhythmic backbone with his vast musical experience and solid playing on the drum kit. Santerias will release new material by the fall of 2018 as part of their fourth album. Their latest single “Mundo Desigual”, released last winter, was well received on social media and highly supported by CBC radio. Their upcoming single “Hurricane” will surely blow you away! Keep in touch via Facebook and Instagram; look for Santerias band.
