Jarrett Martineau, charismatic host of ‘Reclaimed’ on CBC curates a galaxy of potent voices from around the world with his customary eclectic, finger-on-the-pulse vision. Be prepared for an unforgettable night celebrating the power of the lyric in literature and music, moving from haunting hybrids of word and song, to ecstatic percussion-driven ballads.

What does an interweaving of South Asian, Indigenous, Black, and Queer stories of love and resistance look like? What myths have we inherited that give rise to new imaginings of liberation? Confluence unfolds the stories we have always told, continue to tell, and those we have yet to speak into being, in the fight to envision new worlds.

Featuring performances by:

- Acclaimed Anishinaabeg writer and musician Leanne Betasamosake Simpson (This Accident of Being Lost) with Juno nominated cellist Cris Derksen, singer-songwriter Ansley Simpson and guitarist Nick Ferrio.

- Caribbean-American poet and performer Aja Monet (My Mother Was A Freedom Fighter).

- Too Attached (Vivek Shraya and Shamik Bilgi) IN Magazine’s 2018 Canadian Artists To Watch.

- Jhalaak, a new project by Juno award-winning sound designer Adham Shaikh, composer Rup Sidhu and members of Sufi music supergroup Rajasthan Josh.
