TuiYo is the brilliant new trio of Latin pioneer Rikki Thomas-Martinez,
As a performer, he is one of the only musicians to be invited for a second time to the Rainforest world music festival in Borneo. He has played The Grand Hotel, When Zhou, China, the exclusive Dubai Creek in Dubai and the KL Tower, Kuala Lumpu.
TuiYo bring an intense rhythmic and melodic energy to Latin music, with their own very distinctive and accessible take on classic songs from Spain, Cuba, UK and the Americas, played alongside powerful and moving original compositions.
Joined by Dalila Goumeziane on Ubass, vocals and agogos, Keith Angel on vocals and percussion, the dynamic trio play music from the heart, with an irresistible passion of spirit and warmth.
