John Welsh & Los Valientes began with the belief that music has the power to bring people together regardless of language, age or culture. With a global sound that appeals to a wide audience the band has been compared to artists such as Michael Franti and Manu Chao. Blending upbeat rhythms from latin, reggae and soca music, Los Valientes will have you dancing and singing along from start to finish. A favourite at summer festivals and outdoor events, the band were last year’s nominees for “World Artist of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards. In 2017 their album “Vamonos Mi Chica” debuted at #2 on the iTunes Canada World Charts and produced two radio singles in Mexico with “Sayulita” and “Me Hace Sentir”. To date the band’s song “ Sayulita” has surpassed 700k streams on Spotify with support from listeners all over the world. With performances from Northern BC to Mexico City John Welsh & Los Valientes have gained fans of all ages and cultures with their diverse sound and positive message.
