TEXTE FR. À VENIR

JUNO-nominated artist, Tara Kannangara is a second-generation, Sri Lankan-Canadian force of nature, giving you music that is deeply personal, genre-bending and culture blending. All this, encompassed by wild trumpet melodies,searing guitar lines, lush synths, and piercing lyricism will make you turn your head and listen. Growing up iChilliwack BC, Tara studied classical piano and voice from an early age but over the years secretly fostered an interest in Alternative, Pop, Jazz and improvised music. Even still, she decided to study classical trumpet and voice at the University of Victoria, but her love for making
her own art led her to Toronto to pursue jazz and improvised music at the University of Toronto. After years of studying institutionalized art, Tara was compelled to break the veneer built around her experience of music-making. By writing about the realities or absurdities of white excellence, and the triumph of being an outsider, Tara will compel you to listen. Tara has been featured on CBC's The Signal, The Sunday Edition and NPR TinyDesk with Lido Pimienta. She also performed on Lido's Grammy nominated record, "Miss Colombia." She also has worked with Polaris winner JeremyDutcher and The Queer Songbook Orchestra. Her work has been presented atmajor festivals across North America including The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Washington DC Jazz Festival and The Smithsonian.
