// Turkwaz

Turkwaz is a unique combination of four musician/singers, immersed in diverse traditions from mysterious Sufi devotional love songs, to rousing Thracian dance music. Each performer brings a special flavour to the group. Maryem Hassan Tollar draws on her Arabic language heritage, Jayne Brown and Sophia Grigoriadis bring their Greek background to the mix and Brenna MacCrimmon adds her love of Turkish song. They have a long-standing collective interest in Balkan traditions and add Albanian, Bulgarian and Macedonian and whatever else strikes their fancy to their repertoire. The love and respect they have for the traditions they draw from are clear but they are not afraid to arrange the tunes in new and unexpected ways to give them a fresh spin.

// So Long Seven

So Long Seven performs richly textured acoustic music that brings their diverse influences into a distinctly Canadian voice. Influenced by bands such as Punch Brothers, Shakti, Oregon and many others the band is breaking new ground. At once spirited and meditative, So Long Seven consists of Neil Hendry (guitar), William Lamoureux (violin), Ravi Naimpally (tabla) and Tim Posgate, together they are creating a seamless tapestry of sound through their original music. Blending composition and improvisation So Long Seven has been dazzling audiences all across Canada.
