"Toronto Urban Latin ensemble fires up funk fusion!
New video release “Mundo Desigual” will have audiences speaking in tongues.

The word Santerías represents a cultural fusion where dance and music are fundamental ingredients for healing. This band proposes the use of their dynamic music as a universal healing language. Music that is a mystical blend of old and new world influences and of tribal rhythms expressing themselves in the gospels of popular song. The heartfelt guitar runs along with the beat-inducing electric bass, while the drums transport the rhythms to funky Latin locales. Sultry vocals breathe out Bossa tales that teasingly take each song to a mysterious musical place occupied exclusively by Santerías.

This Toronto quartet, brings each member’s diverse musical background to the forefront of their sound, to expose a funky and energetic fusion called RUMBAFUNK. Some songs bring in Latin rhythms while some embrace a Brazilian Tropicália sensibility. With a hot new lineup for 2016, band members include Ana Lía Arias Garrido (Dominican Republic) on lead vocals; Juan Dino Toledo (Chile) on guitar and backing vocals; Oriana Barbato (Chile) on bass and backing vocals; and Randolf Jimenez (Venezuela) on drums and backing vocals.
