Aga Khan Museum Presents
On August 12 celebrate the final weekend of Sunday Social at The Bentway Beer Garden with the Aga Khan Museum Presents musicians KyVITa and Amai Kuda et les Bois. Join the Aga Khan Museum for some fun outside the Museum. Join us as we welcome the uptown Museum downtown to The Bentway!
KyVITa is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Manila, Philippines. His performance is improvised, incorporating looping pedals, guitar, vocals, bass and synths to create ambient rhythms and sounds influenced by RnB, house music and jazz. KyViTa’s live performances are always unique, as he channels the energy of the environment and energies around him to create his sound.
Amai Kuda et les Bois
Amai Kuda et Les Bois have been featured in NOW magazine and on CBC’s Big City Small World, as well as performed at venues like the Jane Mallett Theatre, Harbourfront, The Rivoli, The Garrison, and festivals such as Luminato, Kultrun, Big on Bloor and Small World Music Festival. They have given workshops on music, decolonization, African cultural knowledge and percussion at public schools, Universities, libraries and community centres throughout Southern Ontario, in the Caribbean and Europe. In 2015 the band was selected as one of the ‘101 Standout Artists’ during the nationwide CBC Searchlight competition. They have opened for the likes of Joel Plakett, Kellylee Evans and Sarah Slean, and collaborated with M1 of the legendary HipHop duo Dead Prez on a call-to-action song called “We Can Do It”. Most recently the group won the Best Folk/Roots award and also placed 2nd for the Best Song across all categories at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Whether on the street, the stage or in the studio, for Amai Kuda et Les Bois, music is about healing –the healing of the earth, our ancestors and ourselves.
Aga Khan Museum
The Aga Khan Museum explores and celebrates cross-cultural dialogue through the arts. A centre for innovation and creativity, the Museum offers unique insights and new perspectives into the potential of art and culture to act as a catalyst for promoting pluralism, intercultural dialogue, engaged global citizenship, and social change. As part of a unified Public Programming vision, its Performing Arts activities – in a range of contexts across the Museum site and at external venues – bring this mission to connect cultures and encourage mutual understanding through the arts to life.
