Sonido Pesao is a Montreal group of original urban Latin music. Their compositions energetically mix urban music, rap, cumbia and electronic music. The group, born in 2006 and previously named Heavy Soundz, now fully assumes its Hispanic identity by having translated its name. Since the publication of their album “Tumba Parlantes” in 2011, they have traveled across Canada, spreading their love of cultures and their contagious joie de vivre. They participated in several festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Festival des Nuits d’Afrique, the Pan American Games, Festival Music du Bout du Monde de Gaspé, the CAM tour (2017-2018) and others. Winners of the Sily d’or contest in 2012, and recipients of the 2016-2017 Diversity Prize, they offer a bubbling show and will release their new album in 2020.
