auresia_7.2.14

Montreal’s award winning world/reggae artist AURESIA and Cameroon roots reggae artist FLO have paired up for a cross Canada ‘CHOCOLATé’ Tour in promotion of their recent releases. Sharing a five piece band, AURESIA and FLO will be performing dates from Montreal and going West as far as British Columbia to showcase their eclectic world sounds for the months of July and August.
Auresia comments:

“I am excited to tour across Canada this summer with my newest album RISIN’! as part of the CHOCOLATé TOUR! I am looking forward to reconnecting with old fans I met during my last Canada Love Tour in 2010, and make new friends along the beautiful vast country roads of Canada. I’ll be traveling from Montreal to the West Coast Islands (Quadra, Hornby). Rolling through the foggy hills of Ontario, the flat open blue skies of the prairies, the magnificent Rockies and green Kootneys, crystal blue lakes and rivers of BC to the amazing ocean! After performing excerpts from my new album in Jamaica this past Winter/Spring, filming my music video for my single CHOCOLATE on a roots cocoa farm, I am excited to share my sophomore effort with the rest of Canada this July and August along with my epic 5 piece band and FLO (Cameroon roots reggae artist).”

Adding to her tour experience in USA, South America (Colombia, Ecudor, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil), AURESIA spent time in Jamaica this past Winter/ Spring 2014 to perform show dates with artists such as ANDREW TOSH (Peter Tosh’s son), Jah Bouks and Louie Rankin (famous movie star and dancehall artist), write and record, plus film her latest music video ‘Chocalate’ (view video at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_sdteXyfVk) on a cocoa farm in St. Mary’s Parish at the Likle Dunn Falls in St. Anne’s.

Her latest album ‘Risin!’ was released September 3rd, 2013, with the first single “High” hitting radio across Canada. The release bursts with soulful pop melodies and tackles the themes of love: playful love, long distance love, planetary love, risky love and something we can all relate to: love of chocolate! Featuring collaborations with an international cast of musicians from Montreal, Cuba, Toronto, Jamaica and beyond, the album is a fusion of Reggae, Salsa, RnB, Dancehall, Reggaeton, Rock and Flamenco. With lyrics in English, Spanish and French, Risin! illustrates Auresia’s evolution since her 2008 self-titled debut.
