National Arts Centre

Kobo Town Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town, from their home in Toronto, the Juno-winning group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world, from Port-of-Spain to Paris and from Montreal to Malaysia. Ramon Chicharron Born in Medellin, Colombia, and based in Montreal for the past decade, Ramon Chicharron expresses his love for his roots through his music. With his futuristic psycho-tropical grooves and tropical rhythms of cumbia and champeta, Ramon Chicharron will take you on a colorful and rhythmic travel. A nomadic soul, the multi-instrumentalist composed most of his second opus, "Merecumbé", alone in the Costa Rican jungle.
