Afro-Cuban by way of Canada: Bat­tle of San­ti­ago

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — J.L.

Toronto’s di­verse im­mi­grant pop­u­la­tion of mu­si­cians and artists gave rise to Bat­tle of San­ti­ago, an Afro-Cuban en­sem­ble that is in­flu­enced by Canada’s range of mu­si­cal styles. They formed in 2011 and now have three al­bums: Full Colour (2012), Fol­lowed by Thou­sands (2013), and La Mi­gra (2017), re­leased on their own la­bel, Made With Pen­cil Crayons. Bat­tle of San­ti­ago plays on the Plaza as part of the Santa Fe Band­stand free se­ries on 7:15 p.m. on Satur­day, July 8. Shake Alert, a lo­cal Afrobeat and funk band, gets the evening started with a set at 6 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.santafeband­stand.org.
