The Complete List of Showcasing Artists Announced
Following the announcement of the first names back in August with groove&, Helsinki-Contonou Ensemble, Le Diable à Cinq, Lengaïa Salsa Brava, Moneka Arabic Jazz, Nohe & Sus Santos, Polky and Symbio. As well as the second announcement in September with Afrikana Soul Sister, Ánnámaret, AySay, Bab L’Bluz, É.T.É, JINJ, Kubasonics, Maria and The Band, Pierre Kwenders, PIQSIQ and The Brooks, Mundial Montréal presents its latest batch of showcasing artists!
They are, Ammoye, who presents a unique, forward-looking reggae sound that integrates old school rocksteady, dancehall and dubstep with gospel, soul and rhythm and blues. ANYMA who’s pop-indie sensibility sails between electronic textures, orchestral elements and vivid sounds inspired by her Wendat Nation. Cédric Dind-Lavoie, a versatile multi-instrumentalist and composer of traditional Quebec music. Duo Perse-Inca who create a contemporary dialogue between the music of the Andes and Iran. Kayiri, is a multi-faceted artist and violinist who simply wishes to share her reality through. Lara Wong, a distinctive artist on the flamenco scene today, a Canadian flutist, bansuri player and leader of the Lara Wong Trio. Leonard Sumner is a testament to his ability to simultaneously occupy the landscapes of several musical genres, including hip-hop, spoken word, country and r&b. Oreka TX consists of a unique group known for its energy and strong presence. The group likes to collaborate and experiment with other artistic disciplines in its shows. Shauit who ingeniously fuses several popular genres (folk, roots, reggae, etc.) and offers honest, committed songs filled with emotion. Soukustek encapsulates dance, joy and history; it is Africa in Colombia, harmoniously blending the rhythms and sounds of the guitars that arrived in Colombia from Africa in the 1970s. Syroko proposes a mixed sound, drawn from Algerian Chaabi.
