A Vibrant blend of Latin jazz, Mexican folkloric, Afro-influences and
cinematic compositions.

Award winning percussionist and composer Robin Layne has put together a
project that showcases the marimba and his energetic and virtuosic style on the
instrument. Known for his collaborations with a wide spectrum of folk and
world artists across Canada, including Locarno, Mazacote and Juno Award
winners such as Quique Escamilla, Celso Machado, and the Paperboys, Robin’s
passion for rhythm has led him around the world. He has toured in China,
Europe, Mexico, the US and Canada and pursued his studies in LA, Cuba,
Mexico and West Africa.
Robin released his debut album Memories in 2018 with TrebleFive Records
and spent the summer touring across Washington and BC, appearing at the
FolkLife Festival in Seattle, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Carnaval
del Sol, Stony Ground Concert Series on Pender Island, and ArtsWells Festival
among others.

Performers include: Robin Layne marimba/percussion; Malcolm Aiken trumpet; Liam MacDonald
percussion; Derek DiFillipo bass; Daniel Ruiz drums
