    Testing and recording these amazing sounding vintage drum kits that my friend @guillermo.subauste just got for his recording studio in Toronto. A beautiful 1960’s Ludwig and a 1970’s Gretsch. My favourite drum sounds and make! They sound really great and are available for recording at Guillermo’s studio in the west end. We had a lot of fun producing my last record Encomienda with Guillermo and with other amazing drum kits/performance provided by the talented @marito_marques. You’ll hear these babies on future songs of mine. #drummer #vintage #drums #studio #vintagesound #recording #sound #lover #producer #toronto #ontario #canada #tone #hogs #gretschdrums #ludwig #zildjian #universalaudio #music #songwriters

    Mamá Lupita. The one who used to sing me Mexican ranchera songs every single night in the dark and until I would fall asleep. Those songs and the sound of her singing voice are so ingrained in my mind that despite the 4,529 kms of distance between us I can imagine and hear them clearly by just closing my eyes, anywhere I go. I can easily recall the parts of songs where her voice had a sweet and natural vibrato, and others where her voice would almost break in the high range, but it wouldn’t. 😊 My favourite nightly requests would be: “Tortolita Cantadora”, “A la orilla de un Palmar” by Guty Cardenas and “Canción Mixteca” by Jose Lopez Alavez. At times, I would ask her to repeat them over and over, and every single time she would do them with the same dedication, passion and love. ♥️ Photo from my last visit in February in Chiapas, Mexico. She will be 70 this year! 💃💥 #mothersday #mama #singer #love #toronto #ontario #canada #chiapas #mexico #momandson #amor #songs #lachanclavoladora

    Did someone catch us doing step #1 of the Macarena!? 😊 A shot from the show and video produced by the City of Chicago for their Chicago Sound music series. The video featuring our performance at the Chicago World Music Fest is now available on YouTube. The Jay Pritzker Pavilion—inside the Millenium Park—is truly a magnificent stage/venue with an incredible sound system and sound design 💥🔊 . . . . #chicago #milleniumpark #jaypritzkerpavilion #chicagoworldmusicfestival #usa #american #livemusic #folk #rock #reggae #mexican #music #unitedstates #mexico #roots #toronto #ontario #canada #tequila #parkdale #songwriter #love #serenade #parkdalista

    Posted @withrepost • @parkdalelandtrust We are happy to announce that on May 1 2019, the Neighbourhood Land Trust acquired a 15 unit at-risk bachelorette building in South Parkdale! Against all odds we have removed this property from the private market to assure that the tenants will be safe from harassment, above guideline rent increases and renovictions. Instead, under community ownership, we will provide strong security of tenure for tenants. We will also assure permanently affordable housing! @cllrgordperks #neighbourhood #community #people #affordablehousing #parkdale #westend #toronto #ontario #canada #love #parkdalista

    With my friend and fellow active musician, Roderick Paulin (a.k.a The Reverend) from the New Orleans' musicians union (Local 174-496). We had three days packed of valuable knowledge and insightful information at a great program provided and hosted by the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada, in Washington D.C. Thanks to the Toronto Musicians' Association for sending me over and being able to represent our own Toronto’s Local 149. #washingtondc #usa #american #canadian #musician #union #america #empowering #musicians #strengthinnumbers #toronto #neworleans #newyorkcity #lancaster #orlando #orangecounty #boise #livemusic #symphony #theatre #ontario #canada #parkdalistaabroad

    My older lovely siblings in Mexico last week. Love them and miss them ❤️ despite the 4,525 kms apart. Funny thing is, they’re all in their early 40’s, and me being the youngest I beat them all in number of grays! 😎🥇 #siblingsday #timeflies #positive #familia #sisters #brother #chiapas #mexico #alwaysspring #family #blood
