    Thinking of the beauties in my beloved Chiapas today—while at home in Toronto. These are from last November while driving through the Sierra Madre with my sweet Papa towards Oaxaca. Had a chance and pleasure to hang with him for a few days before parting ways again. He turns 70 this year ! 🙃 ❣️ #mayanland #chiapas #landofchiaseeds #nature #oaxaca #mazunte #toronto #parkdale #parkdalista #mexico

    Who was the nice person walking around Parkdale and leaving these cute footprints on the snow last night? 🤓 👣 Converse or Vans, size 6? Shoe soles expert @peterwagner says Vans. #toronto #canada #parkdale #footprints

    Fun time last night at the Maple Blues Awards. I got to present the Recording & Producer of the Year award. And the winners were Don Tyler Watson and Producer François Thiffault for their recording and production of Mad Love. #maplebluesawards2020 #toronto #ontario #canada #blues #awards

    A couple weeks ago during APAP, my talented friend @robbiequinnnyc caught me in rush mode in New York City—after a nice visit with him in the Village and just before jumping off at 34th st. His improvised, cool capture made me think of the big contrasts between my place of origin and the diverse places where the music has taken me. And at times, despite some weird looks one can get from some modern, plastic-loving and fashionable people in cities like Toronto or NYC, I will always feel proud to wear some garments/pieces that were dyed or handmade with dedication and love by the sweet hands of Mexican Indigenous women from Chiapas (jacket), and Oaxaca (scarf). Despite many years of being away from Chiapas, there’s always a growing and visceral connection to my mother, my father, and my Mexican ancestors’ land and heritage—no matter where the music chooses to take me. Gracias amigo @robbiequinnnyc, volveré a la “Boca del Diablo” in a few weeks 😊❣️ #homeiswhithinyou #nyc #toronto #chiapas #oaxaca #mexico #canada #usa #newyorkcity #aztecs #mayans #mixtecs #zapotec #zoque #teotihuacans #olmecs #mexican #canadian #parkdale #parkdalista #mexicaninnewyork

    My bud Jeff @heisholt doesn’t mess around when carrying his whole rig to the gig. He brought this for his gig at @motelparkdale last night. He is a keyboard, modular synth and a knob-tweaking genius! One of the best keyboard players in town, without a question. Synth and knob heads, catch him next time he is back at Motel on Feb. 11th, 10pm. #toronto #parkdale #keyboardsmofo #bud #genius #ontario #canada #knob #moog #modularsynth #pro #commitment

    One of New Orleans' modern-day treasures. Leyla MaCalla and her band are sounding really great with her unique and eclectic mix of tropical Hatian influences and refined New Orleans’ sounds. I first listened to her and jammed together at a festival workshop back in 2015, and I was really happy to catch her full band set last week at Folk Alliance. Check them out live when you get a chance. Hope to see you soon again friend, @leylacello. 😊💃🏻 #neworleans #music #nola #usa #folk #livemusic #folkalliance #haitian #american
