Patricia Cano is a Peruvian-Canadian singer-songwriter/actor born and raised in Sudbury, ON. Since 2001, she has travelled the world singing Cree Cabaret alongside Canada's Cree playwright/author/composer extraordinaire, Tomson Highway. In 2017, Patricia won the Toronto Theatre Critics Award for best Actress in a Musical for her performance in Cree, English and French in Highway's one-woman musical, The (Post) Mistress, and to this day, their artistic collaboration continues to grow, making Patricia feel like one of the luckiest artists on earth! In 2003, Patricia was invited to work with le Théâtre du Soleil in Paris, France, and after the most remarkable four years with the company, she flew south to Rio de Janeiro where she spent seven months learning the language and making friends in the music community. Upon returning to Canada, Patricia recorded her first studio album, a collaboration with Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist, Carlos Bernardo. This is the New World was released in November 2009 and won Best Album by a Solo Artist at the 2011 Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards. Years of touring across Canada followed, and in October 2017, Patricia released her much anticipated sophomore album, Madre Amiga Hermana, of which one reviewer wrote, "This is an outstanding release from a supremely talented songwriter and vocalist" (Raul Da Gama, World Music Report, Oct 2017).
