Compassion Gorilla. This seven-piece world beat powerhouse will liberate feet and catapult audiences into whole-hearted dance entrancement. Infused with elements of Latin, African and Balkan music, Compassion Gorilla combines tight instrumental arrangements with songs and story telling. The result is an engaging show that is fun for all ages and leaves the audience wanting more.

Shelder the Electric Clamfish. Shelder the Electric Clamfish is a multi-instrumentalist and spoken word artist from British Columbia, performing her eclectic-art-folk original compositions and traditional folk arrangements on accordion and ukulele. Expect to hear catchy Quebecois-inspired songs paired with obscure covers of music from Scottish cult movies. She writes songs based on her experiences of traveling through Mexico, going to music school, teaching middle school and searching for eternal love. Her experience as a teacher lends her to engage openly with audiences, through interactivity and vibrant story-telling.
