Event description
Radiohead meets Fela Kuti twisted through a Canadian art-rock and afro-Cuban dub lens. Don't miss your chance to catch them live!

About this Event

Toronto-based group Battle of Santiago combines classic Afro-Cuban rhythms and vocals with a distinctly Canadian post-rock spirit and sensibility. The result is a wholly unique sound that tells a universal 21st Century story, transcending borders while staying rooted in one city’s immigrant experience.

The band’s newest release La Migra dives deep into Afro-Cuban waters, mixing Afro-Cuban Yourba chants with subtle electronica (“Barasu-Ayo”) and rumbas with post-rock experimentalism (“Asi Vengo Yo”). The sound is more than just Radiohead meets Irakere, though: there’s cumbia tinged with dub (“Cimmaron”), anthemic Latin rock (“Pa Bailar”) and even the smooth funk of “Complica”, which speaks to the messy lives and identities of so many immigrants and refugees.

The Battle of Santiago doesn’t skimp on their live show, either. Their multimedia show integrates digital visual art, live musical performance and audience interaction. The result is a one-of-a-kind organic audio / visual installation not to be missed.
