With members hailing from El Salvador, Chile, Argentina, Panama and Colombia, via Canada, Latin Hip Hop collective Los Poetas sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
Led by park bench philosophers Louwop and Ché Uno and Vancouver-based producer Vago, supported by DJ Grouch and re introducing vocalist/Recording artist Afantü and backed by a smoking salsa band live, Los Poetas is the sort of group that could only be centred in a major multicultural city like Toronto, Canada.
With their impossible-to-keep-your-hips-still beats and distinct voices that act as unifying instruments, these veterans of the Canadian Hip Hop scene provide unique insight into Hip Hop, Latino culture and the immigrant experience, brought to life in a country where diversity is celebrated and paying homage to your roots is encouraged. It’s a message they’ve already taken on the road in their first Central American tour, which they plan to follow up, along with new music in 2017
Los Poetas lyrically capture life’s beauty, intensity, anguish and hope, from the far-flung street corners of their birth countries to the land where they found their voice. Theirs is both a personal and universal journey, one that resonates no matter your language, location or lineage.
