Chiki Lora was born in Malaga in 1982, when Spain was putting on its Naranjito boots for the Football World Cup. He grew up in Madrid, and his bones and songs finally settled down in the Basque country.
He was born as a world traveler musician, and the thousands of miles travelled for many years as a member of Canteca de Macao band where he was composer, singer and guitarist, have come to place Chiki Lora in a haven of peace in his solo career.
He’s not tied to any genre, but drinks a bit from all of them. No barriers can stop him. He flows freely through them. Just like water, he can both be a strong torrent or a placid flow.
Chiki’s performance stemmed from a special trade mission to Columbia. Performing arts centre directors were able to be part of a special artist showcase in Columbia and also meet artists from the area. Chiki Lora is one of two performers touring Canada because of that trade mission. The other is Paula Neder in the Summer on the Plaza Series.
This performance is part of the Tracy Brandingen RE/MAX Real Estate Acclaim Series.
