ABOUT LOS HIJOS DE TUTA (The Sons of Tuta)

THE SONS OF TUTA (Los Hijos de Tuta) is headed by one of Toronto’s pioneers in the latin music scene,  musical director and multi-percussionist,
​Wilson Acevedo.

In 5 years, Los Hijos de Tuta has established it self as a much loved tropical band in Canada central and south American rythms like  CUMBIATON, PARRANDA, SON, BACHATA ,PASEO SANjUANERO,
PERENGUIE COLOMBIANO. Acevedo attributes the band’s popularity to the upbeat, infectious nature of caribbean parranda music – known in Colombia for getting people up and dancing at parties and celebrations!

The music of Colombia is an expression of Colombian culture, which contains diverse music genres, both traditional and modern, according with the features of each geographic region, although it is not uncommon to find different musical styles in the same region. The diversity in musical expressions found in Colombia can be seen as the result of a mixture of African, native Indigenous, and European (especially Spanish) influences, as well as more modern American, Caribbean, Cuban, and Jamaican musical forms

Colombia is known as “The land of a thousand rhythms’ but actually holds 1,025 folk rhythms
Some of the best known genres are cumbia Parranda vallenato. The most recognized interpreters of traditional caribbean and afrocolombian music are Totó la Momposina and Francisco Zumaqué.

​The band’s first CD “SIGUELE SIGUELE” was released in Toronto Canada in 2013.
