Boasting a name that pays homage to his father, Tocayo is southern gentleman from Atlanta with a profound Colombian heritage. Growing up he was afforded the gift of music in many different facets that would eventually mold his own taste including - traditional Colombian music, Raggae, Rock, Hip-Hop, R&B, and as of late: World Folk Music. Tocayo draws vast inspiration from Beatles favorite: Indian Music hero - Ravi Shankar. The roots don’t die there however, Tocayo immersed himself in the creation of his own music from a young age playing trumpet, piano, guitar, and even singing in a band. It has proven to be this diverse library of creativity and music that have sculpted his distinct sound and flavor which can be described as the bastard child of a wild threesome comprised of house, techno, and his extensive musical knowledge. Expect to be fully dialed into a wave of emotion whilst traveling with this artist who has graced the decks across the U.S. and Mexico playing well known venues and festivals such as; Space- Miami, The Electric Pickle - Miami, Treehouse - Miami, Whiskey Disco - Detroit, Tomorrow World - Atlanta, TBA - Brooklyn,NYC, Liqour Store - Portland, Org, Sandwich Bar - Orlando,FL, S.O.S and Be Playa- Playa Del Carmen and many more.
Tocayo’s passion for hosting truly inspired, underground, organic events that focus strictly on art, vibe and music have led him to launch his own label and artist collective - Qoverq (Q/Q). Qoverq has seen much success since its’ birth in 2010 in Miami and Atlanta, and continues to grow with the love and support of many featured artists such as Francesca Lombardo, Jonny Cruz, Til Von Sein, and NITIN to name a few. Expect to see Tocayo and Q/Q bring their notable fervor and style across the globe and into your hearts as the beat goes on.
