    Here we come New Orleans! Super stoked for a week full of performances and connections with old friends and surely new ones to be made here in New Orleans at Folk Alliance International. Tonight, my first performance as part of the International Folk All Stars at the Dragon’s Den, featuring artists from Canada, Australia, Mexico & USA. Catch it if you’re around. 9:00 pm. #nofilter #sunrise #am #nola #neworleans #folkalliance #canada #mexico #usa #folkmusic

    B a d a s s !! A truly amazing photo taken by Cameron Frazier, @bananacamphoto in Vancouver 🇨🇦, and shared to me by my friend @laurenbailey_lb, which I could not resist to repost because I love this image very much. 😊 Mariachi music and culture is not just about signing ranchera songs for fun or money. It’s a long-standing folk tradition, a lifestyle, an attitude and clearly a commitment to deliver to the listeners music that has some power and sentiment that soothes people’s either broken or happy hearts. This fellow is a member of the Mariachi Los Dorados in Vancouver. Man, those 🍁 leaves embroided on his suit and sombrero! 😍 ¡Viva el Mariachi de 🇲🇽, chingao! #diversity #mexico #canada #vancouver #mariachi #music #folk #tradition #tequila #folkalliance #mexican #mexicano #cdmx #jalisco #mezcal #tacos

    Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to have a special guest for a couple of mellow traditional tunes during my set, and we got to represent our Mexican/Latinxs community and musical heritage in New York City. The lovely Mireya Ramos—of the Latin Grammy winners and New York’s only, all-female Mariachi band, @flordetoloache—joined me on stage mid set to gracefully rock the Rockwood Music Hall and its cool “let’s-go-to-town” type of audience. @yeyasmiles🥰.

    Still buzzing today from the incredible night and show we had last night here in New York City, along with Brooklyn’s best Afro-Dominican band @yassertejedapalotre. Thank you all for coming to Rockwood Music Hall and for being such a wild audience ready to sing, dance, clap and shout! Can’t wait for the next time! Thanks to our lovely special guest @yeyasmiles, (of Flor de Toloache) for joining in and gracing us with her voice and lovely presence on stage. 🙂 Ps. And what’s up with this crazy 18° C spring day here in Brooklyn!?🥰🌞. Next stop, Folk Alliance International in New Orleans next week! #sunkisses #newyork #nyc #ny #usa #livemusic #manhattan #brooklyn

    And bam!💥I went from 4 to 39 years old this week! Here I was at a kindergarten dance with the sweetest little gal—and both were ready to shake it like mad chickens🐥on the dancefloor. I still have clear memories from this day when my mom was helping me get dressed for this, and I had a little teary fit 'cause I got a stain on my pants just before meeting up with the girl. ☺️ We were innocent, unscathed and pure. (And perhaps a fucking mini asshole once in a while!). 🙂 If I could double-click somewhere to go back in time and relive that day, I would. But then I’d also want to relive the day after that, and the year after that...etc, and I certainly would end up taking the exact same bumpy road that led me here today, into 2020. Thanks to you all for the kind and well wishes—whichever means you may have used. Now, FYI Parkdale! This Saturday 21st, we’re throwing a fun public jam/party for any of my friends wanting to come out and jam/sing/dance with me, or on your own, at @todaytonightbar. I’ll be playing my tunes and hosting the jam accordingly. (It’s not a birthday party: no gifts, no cake, no birthday song needed) It’s just for the fun of it and to celebrate one more decade of our lives, friendships, music, love, parkdale and community) 1704 Queen St West. No cover. Live music from 8pm to midnight, but the hang will continue until 2:00am. Bring any instrument of your choice. There will be guitars, amps, a cajon, and an electric piano. #handsqueezer #niño #chicoromantico #toronto #parkdale #canada #jam #forevercheesy #livemusic #love #friendship #music #goodtimes #queenwest

    Sopa de pollo! 🐓 It’s nice to spend the next 4 solid weeks of winter at home in Toronto, before heading out again to the madness of APAP in New York and followed by Folk Alliance in New Orleans in January! 🏝🤗. Happy to use this quiet downtime at home to catch up with a bunch of paper stuff, finish some new songs, some home-cooking and hopefully catch up with some local friends. Invite yourself over (if you’re nice!) and we’ll cook, catch up over coffee, write tunes or jam by the fire (in an attempt to embrace and survive the goddamn winter!) #homesweethome #parkdale #toronto #canada #homecooking #homemade #soup #sopadepollo #mexicanfood #sopamexicana #winter #bolero #lospanchos
