RAÍCES: A SERIES CURATED BY JOHN SANTOS
Latin Grammy®-winning, all-female group, Flor de Toloache mixes tradition and innovation, breaking boundaries with their edgy, versatile, and fresh take on traditional Latin American music. The group has graced international stages from Mexico to Japan and has extensively toured the USA and Latin America. Having released three studio albums to date, the talented New Yorker ensemble recently released Florecita Rock-ERA, a compilation of unforgettable anthems inspired by the great rock classics, which left their mark on the group's sound.
Diana Trujillo (Chika Di) was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia during the most violent era in the country’s history that ultimately claimed her father’s life. At age 12, shortly after her father’s death, Diana became deeply involved in music, joining the Corporación Cultural Canchimalos, which gave her the opportunity to travel the country performing traditional Colombian music. By her mid teens, she was performing with rock bands in Medellin and, by the age of 19, she immigrated to the Bay Area, California, where she found herself singing with various salsa bands. She eventually joined La Misa Negra, returning to her Colombian roots and adding an authentic Colombian voice to the band.
