Meet Toque Flamenco Band Members
Toque Flamenco is born early in 2014 when Mario Sota and Marilú (who are a couple) shared the vision of creating a truly unique Flamenco experience in order to promulgate the Flamenco culture in Western Canada. Joined by Karito (dancer and Marilú's sister) and by either Pat Ernst (violin) or by Alana (violin) and David López (guitar, vocals and percs), this project has ever since led to the perfect blending of each other’s talents, tons of inspiration, dedication and creativity, which altogether creates astounding shows every single time.
The band performs Flamenco with passion and rhythmic precision, including spirited, fiery Rumbas that get the crowd dancing, as well as soulful, stirring Dance Pieces.
Toque Flamenco is today Vancouver's most popular Flamenco band. They have performed in many of the main festivals in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland such as Vancouver World Music Festival, Richmond World Festival, Harrison Season of Performing Arts, Khatsalano, Surrey Fusion Festival, Carnaval del Sol, among others.
