‘The Golden Voice’ to perform at CrossCurrents

April 6, 2018   ·   0 Comments

Singer-songwriter and producer Jorge Luis Rojas, professionally known as Rojitas, will be performing next Friday (April 13) at CrossCurrents Cafe in Bolton.
Known for his vocal ability in his native Cuba, where he has been dubbed “the Golden Voice,” he first attracted the attention of the public in the early 1990s as vocalist for a band called Adalberto Alvarez Y Su Son, which was led by Adalberto Alvarez — one of the greatest composers in the country.
Rojitas established his own band, Rojitas Y Su Orquesta, in 1995, which was made up of 14 musicians. He composed more than 300 songs for the band and recorded 20 albums.
In 2000, Rojitas collaborated with George Martin, a producer who worked with the Beatles, and made the album Latin Tribute to The Beatles — Here comes el son.
He moved to Toronto in 2006, where he released Por Encima de la Locura, an album that consisted of Latin pop, rock, ballads and even a touch of country, sung in Spanish and English.
Rojitas is currently a member of the Latin Grammys jury and Co-Founder of the artistic and musical agency ROGA Production Music & Arts.
CrossCurrents Cafe operates out of Bolton United Church at the corner of King and Nancy Streets (use the side entrance).
Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music is slated to start at 8.
Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
