LOISAIDAS Live in Toronto!

1 Mar

Up and coming bachata group Loisaidas will be performing for the first time in Toronto this Friday, March 4th, 2011 at Las Brisas Nightclub (24 Rivalda Rd. Toronto, Ontario). The anticipated event will be Loisaidas’ debut on a Canadian stage and as proud Latinos, no doubt we want to show our support!

Loisaidas consists of songwriter and vocalist, Aquiles Nuñez, and producer and psyche, Isaiah Parker. The two best friends grew up in the lower east side of Manhattan, which is where the name Loisaidas originates from; since it is the name of an avenue there and also a term used by Latinos to refer to the lower east side of Manhattan. Their debut album, “Ayer”, contains tracks such as “No Me Dejes” which had a 20 week run on the Billboard Latin Tropical Airplay and reached #8; yet one of the highest recognitions is that the track landed the #2 spot on New York’s top tropical latin radio station 97.9, a spot behind Aventura. Other great achievements include being one of the first latin groups to perform at the MET in NYC and performing at the Latin Vibe Concert along with latin music legends like Alejandra Guzman and Daddy Yankee. Below are some videos so you can get a vibe of Loisaidas’ smooth and unique urban sentimiento flavour:

Loisaidas has emerged into the latin music/bachata scene and is already leaving a strong mark, not only thru their recent achievements but thru the impact that they are leaving on latin youth; such mark has been seen as the revolution of the urban bachata genre for youth culture from NY to Miami, and now hopefully Toronto. Aquiles and Isaiah are real and humble artists that are staying true to their roots regardless of their rise to fame. They have high bars to reach which have been set by artists such as Aventura and Prince Royce, who is also signed to their label; yet we have no doubt the boys from lower east Manhattan can not only reach, but set their own bars within the latin music and bachata scene.

Your truly has been granted the opportunity for an exclusive interview prior to the Loisaidas show  with the boys on Friday which we are very excited about! If you have any suggestions as to questions you would like me to ask the boys please don’t hesitate to contact me. Of course, I can’t wait to see you all at the show and please, please, please make sure you arrive early (doors open at 10pm) since it is certain that Brisas will be a full house that night! See you there!

With Love,

Christie
