This comes after an amazing Toronto headline show to end the previous year, and following his successful European tour last month, which included remarkable performances in the UK, France, Luxemburg, and Sweden, as well as a sold-out show in Paris.
His latest single, ‘SUMMERTIME IN TORONTO,’ produced by Nigerian musician Omaremii and featuring Botswana and South African newcomer Nthabi Presh, is set to captivate audiences with its infectious amapiano rhythms while showcasing the beauty of Pan-African music collaboration.
The timing couldn’t be better for Borelson, as he gears up for his busiest summer festival season yet.
He has confirmed appearances at various festivals across Canada, including the Carnival Of Algorithmic Cultures, Rhythms Of Canada Festival, Belleville Waterfront & Multicultural Festival, and AFROFEST Toronto, among others.
Borelson shares his inspiration behind ‘Summertime In Toronto,’ stating;
“This song is a tribute to Toronto, the best city in the world, especially during the summer. I drew inspiration from the global success of Amapiano and how Toronto has wholeheartedly embraced African culture in recent years. Despite the challenges we face, I believe it’s essential to celebrate and be grateful for life. This song captures that spirit perfectly.”
Having lived in Gabon, Congo, and France before settling in Canada, Borelson’s diverse cultural background and global experiences infuse his music.
