Winnipeg, the multicultural capital of Canada is very lucky to have such an amazing artist like Marco Castillo to represent the vast and complex culture of Brazil. Born in the Capital Samba, Rio de Janeiro, he was raised in a musical family and that's evident in his musical knowledge. Latin Samba-Jazz Funk probably best describes Marco's music. Blending the unique traditional rhythms and contemporary sounds of Brazil with lush jazz-voicings and epidemic grooves, Marco has been impressing international audiences around the globe. Castillo made Canada his home in 2006

 

Onna Lou is a singer-songwriter born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her music fuses Latin pop-rock with Argentine Folk, Jazz, Latin American rhythms, Tango and even Flamenco. Her lyrics strike the depth of human nature with her subtle yet powerful poetry. The honesty of her melodies is a result of her argentine roots and her beautiful and sensitive way of looking at life which make her music truly unique.

In the last few years she has studied and worked with the multiple Latin Grammy winner producer and songwriter Javier Limon. During that time she produced a music video with Berklee College students for the also multi Latin Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz. This experience gave her the opportunity to participate in the 2013 Latin Grammy Awards performing with the artist. More recently she met internationally acclaimed Spanish singer songwriter Rosana and performed as a guest at her New York show during her USA tour 2015.
