A World Away Toronto Indie Music Festival

We are all different people from different walks of life, and the one thing that brought us together is one song, and everyone is putting their own input, their little flavor into it, to make something so grand and so emotional.

Hosted by Emerging Young Artists to celebrate a range of talents inspired by individual cultural heritage, this is the biggest musical event showcasing the best of what Canada’s emerging ethnic music scene has to offer.

From spicy Latin beats to fragrant enchanting South Asian vibes (and even our very own beloved Canada), this event takes everyone on a journey across the globe exploring the very best mashups of traditional and more contemporary music.

This is not be the first time this event is taking place and usually there is a particular theme but this time, the whole world is invited to take part and demonstrate the diversity of their music.

Included in the roster is the well established musician and winner of the ‘Ella Fitzgerald Award For Jazz Performance (2016),’ Natasha Roldán. Her positive tones - which are inspired by traditional jazz and Latin-American/European music - are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

On the other end of the spectrum, we are be joined by one of the Toronto’s rising Hip Hop stars - Isaac Kabongo or as he likes to be known - Stretch Turner. Part of a rap collective named 16 Bars he has released numerous EPs through iTunes and Spotify.

A late addition, we have Beatsync. An eight piece ensemble from Toronto. They excel in livening up the audience with a diverse arrangement from electropop to slow jams and everything in between. These guys do not like to stay inside the box and their sound is very unique.

All in all there will be more than 25 artists making an appearance at Daniel’s Spectrum on the night. That’s a lot of talent for one list. This was just a fraction of the highlights.
