Legendary Canadian singer and songwriter Amanda Martínez celebrates hope, possibility and persistence in her new album MAÑANA.

After the premiere screening of CICLO, directed by her cousin Andrea Martínez and about her father and her uncle’s life changing journey Amanda and her band will take the stage for an unforgettable performance.

Sung mostly in Spanish and co-produced by Spanish flamenco producer and guitarist Javier Limón (Paco de Lucía, Buika, Diego El Cigala), winner of a GRAMMY® and two Latin GRAMMY® awards, Mañana offers a fresh new twist to her distinctive sound, a blend of Latin pop, Mexican folk music and flamenco with tinges of jazz and Afro-Cuban music. It’s Amanda’s first release in the U.S and Mexico. The overall feel of Mañana is at once deeply personal and universal.

For Amanda Martínez, music is not platitude but a way of life. The daughter of a Mexican father (an engineer) and a South African mother (a teacher), Amanda Martínez grew up in Toronto, speaking English and Spanish, and listening to her father´s eclectic record collection, which included classical music, Latin legends like Trio Los Panchos, bossa nova and jazz, including Stan Getz and Cleo Laine.
