Tonye Aganaba is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and arts facilitator residing on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam & Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
Their new album ‘Something Comfortable’ is an intentional and devotional endeavour inspired by their battle with Multiple Sclerosis. The album serves as the score to ‘AfroScience’ an immersive performance and workshop series fusing live music, dance, visual art/digital media and storytelling to stimulate conversation and action around identity, addiction, healing, and expression. Tonye’s shows, workshops, and classes are connected and intimate experiences, and evoke a kind of vulnerability that we all hunger for.
Tonye's style, like their gender, is fluid (or at the very least non-binary) - but can be described as soul/neo-folk/R&B. They have been likened to acts like Lauryn Hill, Ani DiFranco, and Chaka Khan.
Tonye is a Much More Music Video Award recipient, a steadfast fixture in their arts community, and the kind of singer/performer that turns heads wherever they go.
Join us for a great night of musical fusion.
