Toronto’s Autorickshaw is a quartet of some of the finest musicians you will ever hear, but their music is almost impossible to define: they combine jazz, folk, contemporary, and world music, all based upon the classical music of India and brought up to date in a fusion of eastern and western musical traditions. Autorickshaw has become one of the most intriguing acts on the world music and jazz landscapes.

As one of Canada’s foremost brass quintets, Foothills Brass grace the stage with exceptional flare and virtuosity. These five outrageous, high-energy personalities present polished shows that are full of musical variety, dramatics, improvisation, staging and brilliant audience engagement.
