This year’s Uma Nota Festival was killer. So much fun and so many good times. We can’t wait until next year.

The third annual Uma Nota Festival of Tropical Expression presented Toronto with four days of music, arts and culture from across the Americas. The live music and DJ lineup featured acts from New York City, the U.K, Colombia, and Brazil, as well as the best of the local scene. This year we embraced global innovators while still celebrating the city’s kaleidoscope of tropical groove. Check out the footage in the video montage we made. Thanks to all the people who came out, the volunteers, the artists and our friends near and far. Many thanks once again to our partners.
