Robin Layne & Friends
Robin Layne has become a regular fixture on the folk festival circuit, performing with Locarno, Mazacote, Tambura Rasa and collaborating with many Juno Award winning folk and world artists. His recent touring engagements have led him to Mexico, Italy, China, the U.S. and across Canada. He has followed his love of world music to Cuba, Guinea, Mali, and Mexico studying under master drummers and marimbists of those respective traditions.
The Robin Layne Band plays music that is inspired by his travels and evokes memories of summer days full of adventure and playfulness. With roots in jazz, Latin and African traditions this groove heavy ensemble delivers music that will uplift your spirit, put a smile on your face and take your ears on a journey into the stratosphere. Since forming in 2015 the band has been filling dance floors around Vancouver and performing at festivals across BC and beyond. They are currently working on their debut album to be released in the fall of 2017.
