Come dance and celebrate LAL’s Polaris long list nominated album DARK BEINGS off Coax Records!
With DJ LUCKY $HARMS and musical guest Marisolle Negash!
No One Turned Away for lack of funds!
Since training from the age of 9, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Marisolle Negash is an independent and vibrant force in the local R&B scene in Manitoba. Since 2016-2017, Marisolle has been focusing her presence in Winnipeg. Performing as a solo artist, as well as a pianist for renowned hip-hop funk crew Super Duty Tough Work. There is power not only in her performance, but in her presence as well. Expect great things from her in the near future. Very near.
Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray are LAL, the Toronto-based protest electronic duo that has built a career out of daring audiences to be their best selves, loudly. Coming from the worlds of hip hop, punk and experimental music, LAL blends those influences into the smoothest, richest shake that will enliven the mind, body and soul. Their beats and melodies can charm the most cynical club head, softening them up so that the lyrics of anger, sadness and possibility can worm their way deep inside.
LAL lives and works on the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lenni-lenape and the Wendat Nations.
This land, which currently holds the colonial name of Ontario, is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We also recognize and acknowledge we are in the territory subject to the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinaabeg and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the land and waters of the Great Lakes region.)

Winnipeg is on the territories of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Dakota, Dene, Métis, and Oji-Cree Nations. and sits in Treaty 1 territory, the ancestral and traditional homeland of Anishinaabe peoples. Treaty 1, signed in 1871, took this territory from seven local Anishinaabe First Nations in order to make the land available for settler use and ownership.
