Freeman Dre and friends will be opening the night with a wonderful set of his signature style of jazz and blues. The perfect soundtrack to shelter from the rain with a bevvie in your hand!
9pm - BAOBÁ
Baobá is a trio formed by Toronto’s top female percussionists that take traditional beats to the next level. Empowered by the natural musicality that flows from South American bodies, Anita Graciano, Y Josephine, Mari Palhares representing Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil respectively, demonstrate a great mix. Ideal balance of voice, melody and instrumentation.
When the group started in 2015 the dynamic was clear. The members study different drumming rhythms from various backgrounds and then follow to influence one another into shaping what has been taught in a new lesson. Although this project might appear recent, Anita, Y, and Mari, planted this Baobá seed way back on the common grounds of friendship and continuous arts making.
