With a sound that blends Latin, West African and reggae rhythms, John Welsh & Los Valientes get crowds moving wherever they perform. In both English and Spanish, the band wins over audiences with a high-energy show that emphasizes crowd participation, world rhythms and sing-along choruses. Frontmen John Welsh and Courage “El Valiente” Eigbike have added a talented roster of musicians to their sound that incorporates accordion, bass, sax, guitar and West African percussion. In 2017, their album Vamonos Mi Chica debuted at #2 on the iTunes Canada World Music Charts and produced two commercial radio hits in Mexico with “Sayulita” and “Me Hace Sentir”. A favourite at summer festivals and outdoor events, the band gains fans of all ages and cultures with their diverse sound and positive message. John Welsh & Los Valientes are currently at work on their next album and will be back on the road this summer.
