Quique Escamilla
2015 JUNO Award Winner - World Music Album of the Year
2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards - World Solo Artist of the Year

JUNO Award winner Quique Escamilla was born and raised in the warm, tropical southern lands of the state of Chiapas, Mexico. He breaks down language barriers through his powerful voice and passionate delivery while fusing traditional Mexican styles of music such as ranchera and huapango with modern flavours of rock, reggae, ska, pop, jazz, cumbia, bolero, and more Latin American rhythms; accompanied with powerful lyrics and messages inspired by and to support various social and political issues such as human rights, immigration reform, global conservation, anti-racism and indigenous rights. Quique and his band have toured Canada extensively. In 2016 he's toured Europe three times in support of his award winning album '500 Years of Night'.
