Columbian stars Monsieur Periné, a Latin Grammy "Best New Artist" winner, is one of the fastest growing and internationally renowned Latin American bands. The band's style explores the cultural roots of diverse Latin American sounds by fusing them with jazz, pop and swing.
After their first two albums "Hecho a Mano" (2012) and "Caja Musical" (2015), their latest album, "Encanto Tropical," was released in May 2018, via Sony Music.
The album was produced by Visitante (Eduardo Cabra), a recent Latin Grammy winner for "Producer of the Year." It features special guests Vicentico (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs), Leonel Garcia, Julieta Venegas, Juancho Valencia and Mauricio Rengifo.
"Encanto Tropical" was nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the "Best Latin, Rock, Urban or Alternative Album" category as well as three Latin Grammy nominations in 2018.
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Omar Velasco is an artist who's beautiful and eclectic music draws from his multi-cultural, nomadic upbringing. Citing influences such as Milton Nascimento, Silvio Rodriguez, and Stevie Wonder, Velasco's bilingual music is by turns introspective, expansive, and transcendental.
Having spent several years touring and collaborating with the likes of Jonathan Wilson, A Fine Frenzy, and Jim James, Velasco is currently part of critically acclaimed psychedelic pop band Amo Amo. Velasco's live performances, whether solo or with accompaniment, are soulful and poignant, and are not to be missed.
