    QuiQue Escamilla & Lily Henley Feb 27

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    JUNO Award winner, Quique Escamilla was born and raised in the tropical southern lands of Chiapas, Mexico. Today he is an internationally accomplished artist and singer-songwriter based in Toronto, Canada.
    Quique breaks down language barriers through his powerful voice and passionate delivery while fusing traditional Mexican styles of music such as ranchera and huapango with contemporary sounds of rock, reggae, pop, cumbia, bolero and many other sounds from around the globe. 
    His latest release, Encomienda, represents Quique’s own “mestizaje of the Music of the Americas”, and the wide range of genres found in it are to support the world's diversity of culture, colour, race and language. 
    Quique uses his voice and guitar to tell stories designed to decimate xenophobia and borders. Be it in Canada, Mexico or Europe, he continues to take his Zapatista-influenced message around the world chanting: "We want a world where many other worlds fit in."  "He's a unique talent who holds to the traditions of heavyweights like Bob Marley and Manu Chao. Quique is really one to watch!" 
- Garvia Bailey, CBC Radio Canada.
