TD Music Hall presents
JUNO Award-winning, Quique Escamilla, a Mayan-Zapotec singer-songwriter born in Chiapas, Mexico is an international touring artist and producer based in Toronto, Canada.
Quique breaks down language barriers with his voice and passionate performances fusing traditional Mexican and Pan-American rhythms and sounds, such as ranchera, huapango and cumbia with contemporary elements of folk, rock and blues.
Escamilla comes to the Allied Music Centre with his full band and brand-new songs crafted with bold political statements accompanied with fine musicianship and compelling stories that represent the world’s current times and struggles. His new single Resistiendo elevates the voices of Indigenous Peoples who continue to rise above the impact of colonization and racism across the Americas, from Canada to Argentina. Quique explains, "Each performance is an opportunity to stimulate the human conscience and intellect, and has the potential to help effect positive change in our world."
