Dave Jenniss (Host)
A police officer in the Indigenous humoristic web series Police sans réserve webcast by APTN and TV5. Son of a Métis father from the Maliseet of Viger First Nation, self-taught actor and playwright, but since 2008 his reputation as a writer is growing steadily.
Toronto-based, Colombian-born interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator. Sways from electronic beats, analog synths and Afro-Colombian rhythms to out-of-this-world chanting. An improv virtuoso of her generation.
Hamilton songwriter – the progenitor of “Acid Folk.” Previous two albums were long-listed for the Polaris Prize and nominated for a JUNO. Creator of a dynamic footprint on Canada’s song-scape, a deeply personal, but universally affecting sound.
Recorded her first song at the age of two! Just a happy girl writing sad songs and a full-blooded member of the Haliwa-Saponi tribe. Rose to international attention in 2017 as a contestant on The Voice.
Julian Taylor Band
Travellers of ‘Funk, Soul & Roll.’ Their soulful beats resound from wider horizons. Rhythm and blues, hard rock, thoughtful folky songs, and dabbling in hip-hop. A signal of something new.
Mike Paul Kuekuatsheu
Singer-songwriter from Mashteuiatsh, an Innu community in QC. Folk, pop and traditional sounds in French, Innu-aimun and English. Rich in emotions, his show will make you vibrate to the rhythm of Mother Earth.
Kelly Fraser with Buffy Handel & Dancers
Originally from Sanikiluaq, NU. Singer and rapper in both English and Inuktitut, seamlessly blending the two languages with her powerful, insightful, and politically-relevant lyrics. Her latest album influenced by contemporary pop, EDM, and hip-hop.
