Eva Ayllon in Montreal | A Style Soiree

I’m heading to Montreal this weekend and I’m super excited! I’m going to see one of my favourite artists live, and one that I’ve wanted to see in concert since I was s little girl. Eva Ayllon is the Celine Dion of Peru, she is a cultural staple, and she will be performing this Saturday at Théâtre Denise-Pelletier.

Eva Ayllon

Eva Ayllon is a name known to all Peruvians, young and old. In my case, I remember listening to her music as a little girl. My grandfather would play her songs on a vinyl player, one that he still has and STILL WORKS. Every time I go back to Peru I cross my fingers she will be in concert, but haven’t had the luck yet. By chance, I learned that she was performing in Montreal this summer and I jumped at the chance to get tickets. Road trip!

She will perform on Saturday, July 8th at Théâtre Denise-Pelletier. I believe there are a few tickets still available and you can purchase them on VTixOnline. The venue is perfect for the event, as it is a theatre which creates a more intimate vibe that’s perfect for her shows.

You can get a glimpse of herlive, and her music, in the video below:

She sings traditional Peruvian music, from Peruvian Vals to Afro-Peruvian music, which is my fave genre of hers. More recently, she has been a judge on La Voz Peru (The Voice Peru) and La Voz Kids (The Voice Kids). A few weeks ago, when the phenomenon of “Despacito” by Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi hit #1 in the music charts, Eva Ayllon released her own version, on that reflects the Afro-Peruvian music:

I remembered the first time I watched this video and it got me SO PUMPED for the concert. I really hope she plays this at the show this Saturday!

If you don’t live in the Montreal are I highly recommend a road trip to the city this weekend for the show. I promise you will not regret it, especially as Eva Ayllon doesn’t often perform in Canada.

Of course, I’ll have a follow up blog post, or even a video, of all the fun activities I’ll be up to in Montreal this weekend and a review of the show. If you want to follow along live, make sure to keep up with #AMTLSoiree. We won’t have mini with us, so it will be great to spend quality time with my husband while on an adventure.

Hope to see you at the show!
