After a run of three sold out shows, RPM Live : 004 concludes the fall season in Toronto with Elisapie and Binaeshee-Quae.
In case you’ve missed the amazing Indigenous music that has been on offer in Toronto since August, now is your last chance to experience #RPMLive until the new year.
We conclude our fall season with a night of pop, acoustic, and lyrical songwriting from an all-female lineup that will feature a rare Tkarónto performance acclaimed Inuk singer Elisapie—who is hard at work on her new album—and the sounds of emerging Anishinaabe, jazzy-folk singer-songwriter Binaeshee-Quae.
#RPMLive offers a unique opportunity to see innovative Indigenous artists perform in an intimate setting with incredible sound, and to celebrate the diversity of our community and Indigenous music culture.
The show is likely to sell out, so please get your tickets in advance.

Elisapie is an Inuk singer, songwriter and filmmaker. She was born in Salluit, Nunavik to an Inuk mother and a father from Newfoundland. She was later raised by an adoptive family, living within the Inuit culture. She has performed throughout North America, singing mostly in Inuktitut, but also in French and English. Following the success of her duo Taima, with guitarist and composer Alain Auger, which won the Juno prize for Aboriginal Recording of the Year in 2005, her first solo album There Will Be Stars was released in 2009. For Elisapie, the North is not at the end of the earth; rather, it is at the centre. Elisapie has just finished recording her latest album. This will be her debut performance of new material from the album in Toronto.
Binaeshee-Quae is an emerging Anshinaabe singer-songwriter from Pic River First Nation. Her music is a haunting and unconventional mix of jazz, folk, and acoustic compositions. Her first album Ooof, an onomatopoeically-crafted album inspired by life events of joy and trauma was released in 2013.
