Queer Arts Festival
Saturday, August 3
We realize many people were disappointed that Yamantaka//Sonic Titan had to cancel their Jazz Fest show this year, due to a family emergency. Fortunately for their fans, they are coming back to Vancouver to perform a concert at the Queer Arts Festival, Saturday August 3!
Experimental Art and Music Collective and Polaris Prize shortlisters YT//ST blend the diverse styles of Noh, Chinese Opera, Chinese, Japanese and First Nations Mythology, Black & White Television, Psychedelia and Rock Operatics into a sensory feast for a performance that will be out of this world!
“One of the most exciting bands on the planet.” – NOW Magazine (Toronto)
