Toronto Musicians Wanted
RHYTHM OF THE NATION – Ontario Tour 2017
Rhythm Of The Nation is an interactive dance and musical performance centered around nationally renowned Indigenous street performer ‘DJ Creeasian’. In each show, live music performed by local musicians will be digitally sampled by DJ Creeasian to create an original high-energy track. Audience participation will be encouraged as three hip-hop dancers teach dance steps to the crowd and encourage them to join in. A truly diverse Canadian performance will evolve as each show will be uniquely defined by the audience and local musicians involved.
