Bio

El Mosaico, meaning “the mosaic” in Spanish, represents the eclectic mixture of flamenco and jazz, two distinctive genres that share histories of expressing struggle and oppression. The name also alludes to the varied ethnic backgrounds of El Mosaico’s band members who are Canadians of Italian, Polish, Chinese and French descent, affording a unique exchange of musical ideas.

Formed in 2007, El Mosaico is a quartet of professional musicians with rich experience in flamenco, jazz and other genres. Based in Toronto, Canada, El Mosaico’s repertoire ranges from well-known flamenco standards and lesser-known songs to new and innovative original material. El Mosaico draws musical influences from the traditional sounds of Flamenco greats Paco de Lucia and Vicente Amigo and the pioneers of jazz infused Latin music such as Gerardo Nuñez and Chano Dominguez.

El Mosaico’s music expresses universal and deeply personal sorrows and joys with a magical blend of tradition and modernity. The diversity of the musicians’ backgrounds and musical interests produce a dynamic presentation of flamenco and jazz appealing to fans of World Music, Jazz and Latin Music alike.
