ARTISTS:
Leonard Sumner is an Anishinaabe MC/Singer/Songwriter from Little Saskatchewan First Nation, located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. He provides perspective from a voice often unheard and over-looked in traditional music communities: truthful, insightful, and providing a new sound straight from ‘the Rez’.

Boogey the Beat is an Anishinaabe DJ and hip-hop producer, born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He started making beats in high school and quickly evolved into one of the best beatsmiths in the city. Boogey is a rising star in the hip-hop community and now one of the most sought after producers in NDN country.

Exquisite Ghost is an electronic and experimental artist from Peguis First Nation whose uniquely melodic and ethereal take on contemporary beat-making interweaves echoes of Dilla, Flying Lotus, and Aphex Twin with his hip-hop and jazz-infused compositions. Recently signed to RPM Records, this will be Exquisite Ghost’s debut performance in Tkarónto.
