Amai Kuda et Les Bois
Through Evergreen’s Cultural Performing Arts Series, we are thrilled to have Amai Kuda et Les Bois perform live at Evergreen Brick Works on , Sep 12 2021. The sound of Amai Kuda et Les Bois has been described by NOW Magazine as a “tantalizing Afro-soul combo of folk, roots, desert blues and African continental music.” The group has been hailed as “earthy and rootsy and good for your ears” by CBC’s Errol Nazareth.
Amai Kuda et Les Bois have been featured in NOW magazine, on CBC’s Canada Live and Big City Small World. They have performed at venues and festivals such as Luminato, Kultrun, Big on Bloor and Small World Music Festival. They have given workshops throughout Southern Ontario, in the Caribbean and Europe on music, decolonization, African cultural knowledge and percussion. 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 Plaskett, Kellylee Evans and Sarah Slean, and collaborated with M1 of the legendary hip-hop duo dead prez on a call-to-action song called “We Can Do It”. Most recently, the group won the Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Folk/Roots, and placed second across all genres for Best Song. 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.
Covid Safety: COVID-19 screening and contract tracing are required upon entry and masks are to be worn at the event. This event is made possible through the generous support of Bank of America.
