About this Event

A night of music and visual arts showcased by Idris Lawal.

Idris Lawal is a Nigerian-born, Toronto-based artist. Through music and its combination with design, he creates unique experiences centred around storytelling. Growing up in Nigeria, Qatar, South-Africa & Canada for parts of his life, he is working towards developing a global sound comprised of different elements of all those places. Idris will be releasing his first single of 2019, titled Jordan on February 7th, 2019.

"A Travelling Light" will be Idris' first solo showcase since moving to Toronto from Ottawa. The night will include a live screening of the music video for Jordan (new single being released Feb 7) followed by a live performance. The walls will be lined with visual arts & poetry for your viewing pleasure.

ABOUT JORDAN:

"I (we) flew around the sun last year, like the gods when i (we) orbit. maybe I'll (we'll) land on the moon this year, but this not Jordans"

Jordan was written and recorded as a re-affirmation of self. A reminder that we fly around the sun every year because of our innate greatness. Jordan was also written as a proclamation of black. A reminder that the skin is a gift from God, for the soul to live comfortably in.

"I (we) spent some time with the sun, that's how I (we) got this dark skin"

Ticket Price: $10 + complimentary drink.
