Merna Live

Merna does her thing live for the city, tomorrow (Wednesday) … reach!!!

Off the heals of her most recently released album, sans, Merna and her band will be performing live in concert at The Drake Underground.

Special guest Desiire
Music by Dj L’oqenz


Palestinian-born, Toronto-based multi disciplinary artist, Merna (formerly known as Ayah) blissfully spreads her wings in a space and time where evolution is imminent. After creating magical soundscapes with the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jill Scott) and James Poyser (The Roots), releasing her dynamic album The Calling featuring stellar production by Makai Black and executive producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest, Lucy Pearl), she brazenly forays into the world of art, production, and composition with her new self-produced offering, sans.

Impressively melding minimalistic sound design, striking chords, classic songwriting, and melodic elements of pop, soul, and classical, evolution never sounded so sweet. sans will be sure to poise Merna as a producer/writer to reckon with.
Most recently, Merna introduced audiences to the sans concept of quiet presence in order to make space for creation, the sans experience, via an interactive installation and live shows.

Listen to sans:

EVENT: R.I.S.E. Edutainment presents John River x Esie Mensah x pHoenix Pagliaaci x Adria Kain + more!

Ty Harper | Community,Concerts,Events,Music,News,Video | Saturday, December 12th, 2015

A couple years ago when I was at MTV News I got word of an open mic initiative in Malvern getting a lot of attention. It was called R.I.S.E. and run entirely by young kids from the area. One of those kids was Randell Adjei and I would end up producing a profile on him and how he started the initiative with his friends and peers. This Monday will be R.I.S.E’s last event of the year. If you haven’t been to a R.I.S.E. event yet, this would be a good opportunity to check it out. Guest performers include John River, Esie Mensah, pHoenix Pagliacci, Adria Kain, Brooke Jean, Tuggstar, Wolf J, YHW, C-Flava, Te Holder and Zakisha Brown.

Shouts to Randell and the whole R.I.S.E team. What they’re doing over there is great. I wish I had something like this to look forward to when I was coming up in Malvern.

It all goes down Monday December 14th at 1081 Progress Ave. Show starts at 7:30pm

EVENT: The Legends League presents Naturally Born Strangers (Live @ the MOD Club, Jan. 31st 2014)

Ty Harper | Concerts,Events,Music | Tuesday, January 28th, 2014


It all goes down this Friday: Rich. Tona. Bomb.be vision. Geez.

I’m out of town, so gna miss this, but hopefully you don’t.

Toronto’s finest rhyme spitters Rich KiddTona, and Adam Bomb have teamed up with Bryan Espiritu of Toronto based clothing line TheLegendsLeague to form Naturally Born Strangers, the audio component to the TheLegendsLeague’s F/W 13 collection avaialble   at Livestock in Toronto (116 Spadina Ave.), at retailers across Canada, and online at  www.thelegendsleague.com.
On Friday January 31st, they will be taking over Toronto’s Mod Club (722 College St.) for a special concert and pop-up shop showcasing the highly-popular new product line. In addition to the fall line, LL is designing a special capsule exclusively available at the show. The event will be sponsored by NOW Toronto, Noisey, Hip Hop Canada, and Manifesto.
The full project, entirely produced by Rich Kidd who is closing out a landmark year in his buzzing career, is avaible in full via Audio Mack and has already received wide coverage by the likes of Complex Magazine, Mass Appeal, Onsmash and plenty others.
With Espiritu at the creative helm, the clearly-defined visual aestethic of this project is explained below:

  Naturally Born Strangers represents those born and raised different who don’t associate themselves with the common communal circles. It’s a proclamation of pride in the power of being disliked, unwanted or obscure, weird or foreign to the norm. It’s for the stranger and the more strange, the new community of outcasts, the antithesis to the neighbourhood and the cynics of its circles. NBS is the umbrella title to those influenced by much, deterred by nothing and unknown the world over.

It’s a reflection of our societies vision of “normal”. The queen is represented to create familiarity but has been tainted to identify the strange. It’s fuck government, fuck the system, fuck money, fuck fame, fuck art.”

– Bryan Espiritu & James McGurk of TheLegendsLeague.
