Carlos Del Junco
from Toronto Ontario
Carlos del Junco plays the harmonica like nobody else in the world. Born in Havana, Cuba, Carlos is a pioneer of the 10-hole diatonic harmonica.
Throughout his concert and festival performances with his four piece band, you may hear an eclectic palette of jazz, blues, swing, Latin, funky New Orleans and the occasional African, hip-hop, and ska melody. As a singer, you will hear a voice almost as unique as his harp playing as Carlos offers fresh renditions of classic blues and jazz standards.
While respected as a blues artist, the music played by harmonica maestro del Junco transcends all categorization into sheer artistry bringing musical credibility to what has still been considered by many, a fringe folk instrument. His command of the harmonica is absolute – he plays with all the subtleties and nuances of a classical violinist to the edgier sounds of a blues rocker.
Carlos fuses his respect for tradition with a fresh, innovative, and truly modern approach. Audiences are blown away at every performance and return for more at show after show.
