Kon-Fusion is a project that started in 2012 as a creative music workshop. The richness of this group lies in the variation of styles and influences while maintaining a solid and unique personality. Varying indigenous and western rhythms and mixing instruments native to South America with others more common, Kon-Fusion moves us to the steps of cumbia, reggae, ska, funk, rumba and rock, all in its own way!
From 2018, the years have been very productive for the band placing it firmly in the Montreal and Quebec music scene. The moments that have marked this stage include the self-managed production of a first EP in 2018, the production of a first professional album, the participation in the 13th edition of the Syli d’Or des Nuits d’Afrique and the obtaining of the Syli de Bronze, the participation in the Festival Nuits d’Afrique and Tam Tam Macadam d’Alma among other festivals, the obtaining of the Latin Awards Canada 2021 to the best Underground and Alternative band of the year and a tour by the Bas-Saint-Laurent.
Since 2020 the group has begun to spread its impact internationally. In particular in Chile. More than a dozen interviews in radio and some in regional television and the listening of the single SI NO PA KÉ everywhere in the country leave a firm base for a future tour that is already planned for January 2023.
The members are Luciano Toro (acoustic guitar, back vocals and flutes), Pablo Morales (lead vocals, charango, conga and huira), Alex Marchand (bass and back vocals), Marilou Bouchard (trumpet), Nicolas Lafortune (timpani and percussion), Sam Hampell (saxophone), Tim Savard (trombone), Jonathan Misonne (drums).
