Toronto Urban Latin ensemble fires up funk fusion! New release “¡Oye Mira!” will have audiences speaking in tongues.

Like the religion of Santeria their propulsive music is a mystical blend of old and new world influences – tribal rhythms expressing themselves in the gospels of popular song. Heartfelt guitar runs along with beat inducing electric bass while the dynamic drums transport the rhythm to funky Latin locales. Sultry vocals breathe out Bossa tales that teasingly take each song to a mysterious musical place occupied exclusively by Santerias.

This Toronto quartet, brings the influences of their diverse backgrounds to the forefront of their sound to expose a funk and energetic fusion. Some songs bring in Latin rhythms while some embrace a Brazilian Tropicália sensibility. With a hot new line up for 2016, band members include: Ana Lía Arias Garrido on lead vocals; Juan Dino Toledo on guitar and backing vocals; Oriana Barbato on bass and backing vocals; and Randolf Jimenez on drums and backing vocals. Santerias’ newest release “¡Oye Mira!” (Hey Check this out!) has been well received by the media. This is one of their most experimental CDs to date, where funk, salsa, andean music and hip hop are all glued together by the music that only Santerias is capable of creating. Santerias is set to expand the success resulting from the debut album ‘Bosketches’, ‘Demonios’, a 2010 live CD Limited Edition, dozens of concerts at major Ontario and Quebec festivals and venues such as Harbourfront and CBC Glenn Gould Studio and widespread acclaim from media like CBC Radio, Radio Canada, Toronto Sun and Telelatino. They have also created videos with TMN (The Movie Network) and Bravo.
