British trombonist Dennis Rollins, the founder of jazz funk fusion group Badbone and Co. joins us from Manchester, England to team up with local Cuban jazz trumpeter Alexis Baro.

Later in the evening, Toronto-based Battle of Santiago combines Afro-Cuban rhythms and vocals with a distinctly Canadian post-rock spirit and sensibility.

The night culminates in the much-anticipated return to TO by Sonido Pesao, an award-winning Montreal-based group that mixes Latin rhythms, rap & electro to create the explosive blend that can be heard on their latest album, Reir para no llorar. Sonido Pesao has been called “a Latin rhythm bomb with a contagious energy!”

DJ Andres Orbegozo

Andres embraces the dancefloor with high positive energy selections featuring the best Latin American sounds from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Andres runs a monthly Tropical Bass party in Toronto named Melaza that fuses Latin American tradition with global trending sounds.
