7Sould, a fusion of souls from diverse cultural backgrounds
bringing together their love of music to create an unprecedented
music experience.

The origins of 7Sould go back to 2011 when Mark Daniels (congas,
percussion) and Joaquin Nunez Hidalgo (drums-percussion and Musical
Director) collaborated on a project in Cuba. During this time they developed
not only an appreciation for each other’s musical talents, but a deep
friendship. In 2014 that original idea materialized and developed into an
eclectic jazz ensemble influenced by rock, funk, Latin, and modern pop

This vision was realized with a coming together of six more
intelligent, creative, and solid musicians; JT Kim (bass), Jasper Gahunia (DJ,
keyboards), Madette Mendoza (lead vocals), Dyalis Nunez-Machado
(percussion, vocals, vibes), Darryl Joseph-Dennie (piano, keyboards), and
Gary Lee Hill (guitars). And 7Sould was born. More recently 7Sould added
three new members to the band; Arik Arakelyan (keyboards), William
Lamoureux (violin), and George Murga-Martinez (trumpet).

The members of 7Sould have diverse musical influences and cultural
backgrounds which help the band to approach new music with fabulous
creativity. While all members are Canadian, they have roots all-over the
world specifically from Cuba, Jamaica, Poland, Armenia, The Phillipines, India, Quebec (Canada) and Korea. These differing multicultural upbringings help bring history,
heritage, and modern sounds to the music of 7Sould.
