ARTIST LINE-UP:

1. SILA & THE AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE
(Afrobeat, Afrofunk, World Beat, Reggae, Funk)

Sila epitomizes what people love about this century’s music: Energy, honesty, generosity, ecstasy, and a full-tilt dedication to digging the groove until the last call. Sila’s music titillates the senses and people everywhere have developed a healthy appetite for his funky fusion of African rhythm, American funk, Soukous, Afrobeat, and Reggae.

Inspired by his Kenyan roots and his love for all genres of music, his sound is unique, yet instantly recognizable. His lyrics and beats reflect the music, the language, the energy, and the spirit of growing up in Africa.

3. LADY RA (Beats Without Borders, Vancouver, BC)

Lady Ra emerged in 1996 via CFRU 93.3 fm in Guelph, Ontario, Canada . Freshly trained on antiquated community radio equipment and given free reign of the extensive music library, each show she was able to program was a revelation. Ethnic flavours quickly emerged as her primary passion.
Her flair for selecting wicked tracks and mixing them with ambient
global sounds brought her many requests for djing local parties.

After a year in Asia absorbing the local flavours, from Indonesian
Dangdut, Sri Lankan Baila, Punjabi Bhangra, and everything in between, she relocated to Vancouver on Canada9s West Coast. She is inspired to continue her travels both overland and underground, seeking out and weaving old and new world sounds into rich musical tapestries hailing from the FourCorners of Earth.
