Amanda performs in honour of her Dad in support of Amistad Canada
I am honoured to be performing as part of a special afternoon concert in support of Amistad Canada and Jóvenes Adelante and a brand new scholarship in my father’s name – The Gustavo Martinez Love of Learning Scholarship. This scholarship will send a Mexican student to medical school. I will be joined on stage with my band as well as my good friend and award winning writer Martha Bátiz who will read from her acclaimed short stories.
The concert takes place September 10th at 4pm – doors open at 3:30pm
The show is now sold out! For donations to the Amistad scholarship go to:
Thrilled to compose for Rosie’s Rules!
I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to compose music for Rosie’s Rules, now on PBS and TVO, with award winning composer Ari Posner. I also have had a lot of fun voicing the role of Abuela, Rosie’s grandmother for the same show. Rosie is played by the talented Elora Lopez who is the grandaughter of guitarist Jorge Lopez who I also got to collaborate with on some of the songs! Growing up, television shows like Sesame Street had such a huge influence on me and I am so grateful to be part of this team who have worked so hard to create a show that showcases the beautiful traditions and culture of Mexico.

Amanda performs at her first live twilight concert
What a thrill to perform in front of real life human beings again! I am so appreciative to my friend Sarah Climenhaga who hosted our first backyard show since lock down which sold out in days. It was a beautiful way to end the summer!
