RED SKY: Internationally renowned for its artistry and innovation, Red Sky is Canada’s leading company of world Indigenous performance in dance, theatre and music.
ALEX CUBA: With a heart as big as his retro ‘fro’, Alex Cuba’s trademark sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords cut through cultural barriers like a machete through sugarcane. He won a Latin Grammy Award in 2010 for Best New Artist and was nominated for Best Latin Pop album at the 2011 Grammy Awards.
JAVIER DZUL: New York City-based Javier Dzul fuses Indigenous pre-Hispanic ritual and mythology in dance with the undulant muscularity of a jaguar.
