Now that we’ve had our share of April showers (and then some), let’s start the summer with our last Globetrotter of the season – Tropical Bass! Past, present and future Latin vibes come together with the return of Uproot Andy. His appearance here last year was among the highlights of the dance floor season. With rhythms from Colombia to Algeria, Brazil to Ethiopia and more, he’ll be joined on June 3rd at Round by DJs Linterna and Ontario Bananas and Resident Globetrotter, medicineman. A party not to be missed!
Here’s Uproot Andy at the Armada FANIA Club & Pop-Store in NYC last year.
Our pals at Lula Lounge launch their 15th annual Lulaworld program with a pre-festival panel and party May 29. The free event starts with a conversation on diversity and live music in the media with heavy hitters Errol Nazareth, Dalton Higgins, Erin Lowers and Zaib Shaikh, moderated by Small World’s Kayla McGee. The party features soul rebel Ammoye and performance artist Charmie Deller. Join the conversation, and stay for the fun.
Lastly, June sees the culmination of an ambitious project instigated by the folks at Koerner Hall – we’re pleased to support the New Canadian Global Music Orchestra. This top-notch assemblage of Canadian musicians from all over the world perform together on June 2nd with instruments from every corner of the globe. Celebrating the diversity of our city, and the music of our neighbourhoods, the group finds a common language that is quintessentially Toronto.
