Louis Simao Trio
Sunday September 8, 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm | Stage in the Round | Music
Award-winning, Toronto-based musician Louis Simão has been composing, performing and recording as a multi-instrumentalist in a variety of genres for over twenty years. His repertoire is a collection of his own compositions and arrangements that take the listener on a journey through the sounds of the Portuguese-speaking world in a style and voice that is at once universal while remaining deeply personal. In addition to performing as a sideman with a variety of Toronto-based artists, in 2016, Simão released his much-anticipated solo album, “A LUZ” (The Light), which garnered him Song of the Year at the 2017 International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA) as well as the 2017 World Solo Artist of the Year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Simão will be joined by the incomparable Peruvian-Canadian percussionist, drummer, vocalist and producer, Luis Orbegoso and Jonathan Amador on electric bass.
