About the Artists

Wonder Y

Toronto-based Venezuelan-born Y Josephine performs an extended percussive piece that incorporates poetry and song, showcasing Y Josephine's virtuosity on the cajon. Taking flight from three words provided by the audience, Y weaves a poem around listener/ participants then moves into song intertwined with Y's inspired percussion. Find out more about Wonder Y, on Facebook and Instagram.

Joy Lapps-Lewis Project

Lapps-Lewis' pan-driven ensemble explores Afro and Latin-Caribbean Jazz with a hint of R&B and soul. Musician, composer and arts educator, Lapps Lewis has released four recordings, with a new release scheduled for later this fall. Find out more about Joy Lapps-Lewis, on Facebook and Instagram.
