In 2015, Chilean indie darling Gepe wowed us with Estilo Libre, his fifth studio album. With lead single “Hambre,” the electrofolk troubadour snagged the no. 3 spot on our top 50 songs of 2015 list, and warmed our hearts at the end of the year with the bachata-inspired video for “Invierno.” Now, Gepe is kicking off 2016 with a bang, as he’s just announced a North American tour with stops in Mexico City, Los Angeles, and New York. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks, but mark your calendars and check out the tour poster below:
