Eljuri to Perform at Lula Lounge in Toronto on Wednesday May 9th for Canadian Music Week 2018

“Eljuri plays ferocious, brilliantly guitar-driven, fearlessly populist rock en Español." –NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY

No doubt, the activist Eljuri raises awareness about the themes that she weaves through her songs . . .  she motivates us to defend our rights and speak up in the face of injustice.” –REVISTA GM5

Eljuri has been invited by Futuro Libre and Lula Lounge to perform in their showcase, ‘Spanglish Canada’ on Wednesday May 9th during Canadian Music Week 2018 in Toronto. Canada has welcomed and celebrated Eljuri and her music since her debut live performance at the Luminato Festival in 2015.

The Eljuri power-trio (Cecilia Villar Eljuri, lead vocals, guitar; Alex Alexander, drums; Winston Roye, bass) will share many favorite songs from all three of her albums including her latest single, 'Sálvame’ which showcases all that Eljuri’s music is and represents. The song blends her two spoken tongues English and Spanish and fuses her musical styles from Anglo rock funk to Latino son cubano rhythms. Eljuri describes that, "Life and our love for one another will save us and can lift us out of the mire we currently find ourselves in.” She shares that the electric guitar solo she plays on ‘Sálvame’ is among her very favorites from her album, ‘La Lucha’.

Female artists of different origins and musical styles are represented at ‘Spanglish Canada’ and throughout Canadian Music Week. Along with 45 of the world’s largest and most influential music festivals and conferences, CMW has partnered with PRS Keychange and committed to achieving gender parity including in live line-ups, conferences and commissions by 2022. “At Canadian Music Week, we have always strived to create diverse programming that is reflective of both audience interest and the current landscape of the industry.” – Neill Dixon, Canadian Music Week
