Leang Manjarrés with Ruben Esguerra and New Tradition.
A master gaitero at the forefront of Colombia’s Nueva Gaita movement explores diverse Caribbean folkloric traditions alongside Esguerra’s JUNO-nominated Toronto ensemble, creating an empowering, hip hop-infused expression of indigenous and Afro-Colombian music.

This tightly knit Toronto Afro-Brazilian samba reggae percussion group is joined by a leading member and educator from the legendary Afro-Brazilian bloco Olodum as part of a week-long residency.
