Sweet SantaFe combines rich warm vocal harmonies, Caribbean rhythms, and Canadian folk style songwriting,  to transport audiences to a sunny beach with a gentle breeze drifting off the azure ocean. They spread their infectiously upbeat vibe in both Spanish and English.

After several Western Canadian Tours, Sweet SantaFe has shown time and time again their ability to draw the audience in with their stories and lyrics. They have been dubbed as a “local treasure” by Doug Cox the Artist Director of Vancouver Island Music Festival. Doug Pickard, Owner of Ground Zero has featured Sweet SantaFe touting their shows as “an absolute delight.” saying “Their ability to interact with the audience is unique and refreshing.” and “It’s impossible not to smile and move your body while taking in a Sweet Santa Fe show. Truly an experience not to be missed”  

Their debut album has been played across college radio, charting in the #1 spot in world music on CFBX in Kamloops. They have been interviewed by interviews on CBC radio, No Strings attached and Talk N Tunes and have performed live on CITR The Medicine Show at UBC in Vancouver, CFUV in Victoria and CHLY in Nanaimo.

Watch them. In 2020 they will be bringing you a new album titled “Dichoso” a Spanish word that means fortunate, and they do feel that way. They are fortunate to be collaborating on their second album with Jose Sanchez, percussionist, singer, recording engineer and touring drummer for Alex Cuba, Pablo Cardenas one of the best Cuban pianists of his generation, Tom Keenlyside an iconic Canadian saxophonist and flutist from Vancouver, and Rene Worst one of the most influential and leading jazz voices of North America. Schedule for release in the Summer of 2020.
