Urban Africa Series, presented by :
Since 2006, the Latino-influenced urban beats from Sonido Pesao (formerly Heavy Soundz) have led the Montréal cultural scene to new heights. The group, winner of the 2012 Syli d’Or of world music, chants its rap phrasing in Spanish, with a heavy dose of electro. At the time of writing, the group was working on a new album, Todo Revuelto, set for August. The first track, Dime Que Si, with Boogat, was released in June. Sonido Pesao will be bringing their new material during the Festival in what is expected to be a stunning show!
