Bringing together musicians from Cuba, Mexico, Brazil, Africa, U.K. and Canada, the BC World Music Collective takes you on a worldwide musical journey without leaving home. Eleven musicians, all with their own professional music career, weave their musical traditions together to create a unique experience. The Collective is comprised of Adonis Puentes, Celso Machado, Tonye Aganaba, Kurai Blessing Mubaiwa, Tom Landa, Pedro Mota, Robin Layne, Liam MacDonald, Nick La Riviere, Kalissa Landa, and Chilliwack born First Nations (Stō:lo/St’át’imc/Nlaka’pamux Territories) rapper, Ostwelve. They first came together in the summer of 2015, when the artists were asked to perform at the Vancouver Island Music Festival. After an intense week of rehearsals and their appearance on the main stage of the festival, the group decided that one performance would not be enough.

The eclectic collection of instruments that these musicians play ranges from percussions, guitars, bongos, trombone, jarana, pandeiro, fiddle, marimba, congas, bass, trumpet, and mbira.

The supergroup group is a collaboration that sees all the musicians playing with each other, and backing each other up as they sing their own songs and tell the stories of where they are from and how they got to British Columbia. Their celebration of multiculturalism is full of high energy and great musicianship…not to be missed!
