Kseniya Tsoy is a community-engaged and mural artist originally from Uzbekistan. As a person of mixed heritage, diversity is a vital component of her life and a constant inspiration for her work. Her personal murals are a visual exploration of complex cultural identities and are inspired by folk motifs from diverse cultures that have influenced her. Occasionally, she loves doodling comics that fight stereotypes with lightheartedness and humor. Sometimes those doodles even make it into public murals!

Ayham Harb & Mohammad Babani

Ayham comes from a Syrian family of musicians. His father taught him when he was 6 years old how to play keyboard. When he turned 15 years old, he learned how to play the oud by himself. At the age of 19 years old he went to Emirates where he worked as a graphic designer for 10 years. In 2014 he went back to Syria and taught oud in music institutes, after 3 years he came to Canada with his family.

Mohammad Babani is from Lattakia in Syria. Immigrating to Canada 3 years ago coming from Dubai, sponsored by his relatives after he had left Syria when he was 20 years old. He started playing music when he was a little boy at 4 years, practicing w/ spoons or forks, knocking on tables, doors and singing. He learnt the violin, but quickly switched to drums and oriental rhythmic instruments. He then studied music in a private institution for 10 years.

Mohammad paired his enthusiasm about music with Ayham making a wonderful duo that highlights the beauty of middle eastern classical music.

Bonsa

A singer-songwriter from Burkina Faso who blends traditional Bissa music with various contemporary genres. His powerful praise-singing leaves no one indifferent, and his unique koanni groove is simply irresistible.

OK Naledi - an Afro-House music project created by Queer, Motswana Canadian musician Kimberly Naledi Sunstrum. Traditional sub-Saharan clean guitar lines, classic deep bass, movement-inspiring beats and that iconic, driving Afro-House tempo - these are the pieces that define OK Naledi.

Regina Teixeira

Singer and percussionist Regina Gomes Teixeira was born in the culturally diverse North-East of Brazil, where the art of music permeates every aspect of daily life. She began to study the Brazilian guitar in her teenage years and, at the age of seventeen, became the lead singer of Dedo Verde, a popular samba band from Guimaraes, in her native Brazil. Upon arriving in Canada, Regina became actively involved in promoting her Brazilian culture, locally and beyond, by hosting annual Brazilian Carnivals. As a guest or as lead singer-percussionist, she has since collaborated with a great number of solo artists and bands (Roda de Samba, Samba Way, Café Olé, Brazilian Vibes, Tropicantos... and many more) and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs (Radio-Canada, CBC, Télé-Québec, MaTV, Romanian National Television, among others). She currently leads Florquestra, an exciting band of variable geometry and numerous musical projects.
