Bridging the contemporary and the traditional, Lulaworld Records brings the Latin, Brazilian and global roots sounds of the most diverse city in the world to music adventurers around the globe.
Having grown out of the vibrant live music scene at the Toronto venue Lula Lounge and the associated Lulaworld Festival, the label's debut release by Mexican Canadian singer songwriter Quique Escamilla won the 2015 JUNO Award in the world music category and the Canadian Folk Music award.Subsequent releases by OKAN have also earned Independent Music Awards and JUNO wins and nominations.
With a focus on salsa, tropical and Latin jazz, the label is now expanding its scope to include artists from beyond Toronto, including Brazilian, spoken word and Indigenous artists.
Like the venue that inspired its creation, the Lulaworld Records has a musical range that spans Mexican reggae, Cuban jazz folk fusion, New Orleans inspired funk, classic Tumbao and electro samba. Stay tuned for single, albums and compilation releases coming soon.
