Rumba & Riddims

Hey Rebels,

Hope everyone’s month of May has been full of blessings, love and more.
Here at Woke Up A Rebel, we have some big news to share with you. 
We’re hosting a night of music, again! This time, we are pleased to announce that we are in collaboration with Cheryl Cornejo and Leroy Escobar who are providing their skills and creative input through every step of the way to make this an unforgettable night.

We called it… RUMBA & RIDDIMS.
If you follow the Woke Up A Rebel brand, you’ll know that we’ve always been about promoting unity among the Caribbean, West Indian, Latin American and African communities through what we know best, MUSIC! We’ve been wanting to do something like this because Toronto is such a multicultural city. Why not invite everyone to “el asado” or the “cookout?”
That’s why, we believe that Cheryl and Leroy are great additions to the team.

Check out some of the footage from our last event in 2022.

Rivoli is a historic venue where many legends have graced their stage including Drizzy Drake, Shawn Desman, Girl Ultra, Nirvana and many more.
Here’s an article I found from Blog TO that gives you a detailed history of the venue.

This was the very first time we went to Rivoli and we supported as DJ’s for Toronto’s own Sulek and MellyQueen when they opened up for Mexican singer Girl Ultra. It was a great night.

Leroy Escobar is an artist who defines versatility. He can hop on a Reggaeton beat and smash it. He does Hip Hop, Trap, can potentially steal your girl with his romantic bars and now, he’s testing the waters with EDM. Needless to say, he’s hit the nail on the head with this one. Hearts//Corazones is carried by an infectious 4-on-the-floor beat that will inevitably get you shufflin’ and moving to the rhythm. I’ve had this song on repeat. Make sure to purchase your tickets for Rumba & Riddims to hear/see him perform this track and many more from his catalog. 

Check the song out on Spotify or this week’s Woke Up A Rebel Playlist

Purchase your tickets to see him perform live on June, 30th.
