Battle of Santiago: Battle of Santiago combines ancient Afro-Cuban rhythms and chants with a distinctly Canadian post-rock spirit and sensibility. Fused by dynamic elements of jazz, the result is a party-forward experience that has brought them to stages across the globe, including NYC’s legendary Joe’s Pub, and festivals across Canada, the US, Spain, France, The Netherlands and more. Their unique sound tells a universal 21st Century story, placing them in a prism between artists as diverse as Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thundercat, and transcending borders while staying rooted in one city’s immigrant experience.
Reimundo Sosa: Reimundo Sosa is a Juno Award nominees, professional percussionist, composer, and educator living in Toronto, ON. Born in Havana Cuba, Reimundo began playing percussion in the street when he was just six years old. He became fascinated with Cuban folkloric music and began to study Rumba, Bata drums, the traditions of Santeria and the music of the Orishas. At ten years of age he participated in his first recording with a Cuba/France project called P18. At 19 years of age, Reimundo was given a contract with the folkloric company named JJ, and was soon classified as a musician of the first level. Immediately he began to travel to Martinique, and then moved to Canada in 2009.
