This year’s fundraiser for the Summer 2017 session of Singing For Love will take place Saturday April 8 at Supermarket Restaurant and Bar, 268 Augusta Avenue, in the heart of Kensington Market.
Singing For Love offers the opportunity for young survivors of domestic violence to be heard, to tell their own stories in their own words, and to use music to find and grow their strength. Proceeds go to transportation and nutrition for the kids, and to supplement curricular resources.
Our version of the song “El pescador” was recorded at Quantum Vox studio in Toronto November 24th, and broadcast in Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A. on the Children’s Environment program with Sandra Figueroa on December 11th! Give it a listen!

A packed house at Ciro’s Pub & Eatery
Friday, October 7; Toronto
It was standing room only—and very little of that—at Ciro’s on Bloor St. Friday night for La Sana Rabia’s official video release party. The crowd enjoyed an energetic first set, capped by a hot live rendition of “El Inmigrante,” before watching the new video directed by Jeronimo Casas and Rodolfo Peña.
But the celebration of talent and artistry didn’t stop there… filmmaker Jeronimo Casas then premiered his short film, Canciones, starring Rosy and Luis Rojas.
The event was filmed by Televisión Educativa (Mexico).

A fundraiser in support of art-educational workshops for children who have lived with domestic violence.
This workshop offers the opportunity for young survivors of domestic violence to be heard, to tell their own stories in their own words, and to use music to find and grow their strength.
Children age 10 to 14 will receive instruction on the ukulele in tandem with a history and inspection of the Blues, write and record two pieces of their own. Guided by discussion and encounters with stories of dignity, respect and self discovery, participants collaborate to produce two story-songs on the theme of their happiest and saddest family memories.
