The BC World Music Collective is made up of musicians from around the world who have all made their home in this beautiful province. The collective is comprised of Adonis Puentes, Farnaz Ohadi, Tonye Aganaba, Locarno (Tom Landa, Pedro Mota, Robin Layne, Liam MacDonald, Nick La Riviere, Kalissa Landa, Ronnie Swirl), JeanSe le Doujet, and Chilliwack born First Nations (Stō:lo/St’át’imc/Nlaka’pamux Territories) rapper, Ostwelve. The BC World Music Collective first began in the summer of 2015, when the artists were asked to come together to perform at the Vancouver Island Music Festival. After an intense week of rehearsals, the group made their first appearance on the main stage of the festival. After their set, they were all elated with how it went, and decided one performance just wouldn’t be enough. A few weeks later, a plan was hatched to turn the one-off project into the province’s most exciting World Music band, who have subsequently played at festivals around BC, demonstrating the power of diversity and collaboration.
