2015 Juno World Music award winner Quique Escamilla (Mexico/Toronto) offers us his unique talents in a solo show, full of energy and variety. Limited Capacity, so get your tickets early!
25 years of performing live have seasoned Quique to effortlessly connect with his audiences, be it in an intimate house concert setting or on prestigious festival stages. He breaks down language barriers through his powerful voice and passionate delivery while fusing traditional Mexican styles of music such as ranchera and huapango with modern sounds of rock, reggae, ska, pop, jazz, cumbia, bolero, and a variety of other Latin American rhythms. His lyrics carry powerful messages that are inspired by and support various social and political issues such as human and civil rights, immigration reform, global conservation, anti-racism, discrimination, anti-oppression and Indigenous rights. Despite the distance from his homeland, Quique remains strongly attached to his Mexican roots
