It is said that once your heart center (Anahata) activates and your consciousness rests there, you may hear the sounds that penetrate your whole being and that these sounds are most pleasant to the ear and they resonate within every particle of your universe.
Music has great power over our psyche and consciousness. When we hear the music that is in tune with our heart, our heart opens to it and starts to sing it’s own song of love.
The music will start Saturday afternoon with the sounds of ambient and downtempo and will slowly morph into upbeat dance party by the night. Sunday we continue to relax with the ambient music in the daytime and will have a second dance night. Between 6:30 and 8pm you are invited to embark on a live sound journey (see details below).
“It is not only about the music. In a deeper way it is about the connection between cultures…”
~Tangi Ropars, leader of Moskitto Bar.
Moskitto Bar is a fresh and unique sound created in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, Canada. Their sound combines a beautiful and original mix of Ukrainian, Balkan, Iraqi Middle-Eastern and French Celtic music.
Toronto saw the band playing in the streets, community events and bars and more recently in public libraries, Aga Khan museum, Opera House, Ashkenazi festival and Korner Hall. Moskitto Bar shared the stage with international musicians such as famous Russian band Dobranotch, the Bosnian icon Bozo Vreco, and Burdon Fold Band from Ukraine. Collaborations with other artists is embedded in the band’s culture/mandate.
