Described by World Music Central as "one of the great new voices in Spanish language Latin music, " Amanda Martinez has been embraced by the masses all over the world with four previously released, highly acclaimed albums to her credit. 

 

Her highly anticipated new album Recuerdo is a daring departure that incorporates elements of world fusion, Cuban rhythms, and an injection of English pop and is her most adventurous album to date.  It is dedicated to the memory of her father Gustavo who bicycled to Toronto from Mexico in 1956 and from whom she says “I got my love of music.”

 

Accompanied by her band of 20 years – Kevin Laliberté on guitar, Drew Birston on bass, Rosendo “Chendy” Leon on percussion, Alexander Brown on trumpet, and violinist Osvaldo Rodriguez, this performance marks the official launch of Recuerdo and features special guests including Aviva Chernick, Waleed Abdulhamid, and Donné Roberts.
