Warren Hooley ~ Spoken Word Artist
An Okanagen aboriginal facilitator and practicing artist, and a member of the IndigenEYEZ leadership team. Warren defines himself as an ‘Inspirational Hip-Hop artist’ and much like the classic roots of hip hop, Warren stays true to keeping his lyrical content based on life experience and social change. Fusing other genres of music with hip-hop and adding his flare of passion and authenticity, Warren creates music that inspires and moves people of all walks of life.

Y.G.B Portland (Young, Gifted & Black)
Y.G.B is more than just a party, it's a Community. We come together to get down, celebrate each other and honor all things YOUNG,GIFTED and BLACK. Our resident DJ Lamar LeRoy plays the jams while Akela Jaffi serves you body and voice. With incense in the air and sweat dripping onto the dance floor YGB is a party that will heal your soul and have you feeling yourself all at the same time. We're calling all Lovers, Creators, Change Makers, Hustlers, Baby Mamas, Nation Builders, Dancers, Revolutionaries, Freedom Fighters, Spiritual Gangsters and Everyone in Between!

POPgoji ~ a mash up of American pop/soul and infectious Brazilian beats. Fine tuned vocal harmonies, layered percussion, and unique strings pay tribute to spiritual traditions of the African diaspora. Recreating the community energy of a Rio-style pagode jam session, POPgoji packs dance floors with hot Afro-Brazilian dance rhythms and familiar lyrics.

Cosmic Rose ~ Positive and inspiring, dance-heavy, reggae-influenced, acoustic groove and space-funk music with uplifting lyrics and melody!
