Three days of concerts to warm you, presented and streamed for free from Performance Works on Granville Island. From bebop to hip hop, get to know Vancouver's coolest artists from the comfort of home.
DJ Kookum & Sierra Baker
Kookum is an open format DJ but grew up listening to EDM and Hip Hop music. With club residencies, one-off gigs, and through work as the official DJ for Snotty Nose Rez Kids, this diverse mix diva slays on the decks and always keeps it hype, fresh, and unpredictable. They’ll perform a 30-minute set with dancer, designer, community consultant, entrepreneur, artist, and storyteller Sierra Baker.
Next up, it’s Missy D, a bilingual emcee born and raised around the Motherland of Rwanda, Cote d’Ivoire, and Zimbabwe. She’s been rapping since she was 11 years old in both French and English, and represents a blend of African cultures in her life-force and in her music, fusing hiphop, rap, and R&B with what she calls Rap & Soul.
The story of Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is the story of determination, passion, idealism, community, and of course, music. Founded in 1985, we incorporated in 1986 as a community-based, not-for-profit, charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia. From the very beginning, the society has worked diligently to establish Vancouver as a centre for the creation and exchange of sounds and ideas between the local, national, and international music communities.
This performance will be streamed online. Once you purchase your ticket you will receive further communication directly from Coastal Jazz to attend the performance.
