Nico Paulo is a Portuguese/Canadian songwriter, performer, and visual artist. She moved to Canada in 2014 to pursue her career, originally putting down roots in the vibrant Toronto arts community, and eventually moving east to become an essential part of Newfoundland’s celebrated music scene. Her latest releases—the EP Live at First Light, recorded for the Lawnya Vawnya Artist Residency, and a cover of José Afonso’s Portuguese folk song “O Cavaleiro e o Anjo”—were both recorded in Paulo’s adopted hometown of St. John’s.

Inus Aso, which means the warmth that beats within us, was started in 1987 by Jamaican reggae artist Buntin Neil. The group’s name alludes to the music that lives within its musicians and is part of their spirit. With his sons, Zebe Elijah Neil (bass guitar) and Himijah Neil (backup and percussion), the group is worthy of the respect it has gained among reggae music fans on the Montréal music scene.

Ribbon Skirt, whose music draws directly from the grunge scene of the 1990s, has performed at festivals across North America and has shared the stage with the scene’s big-name acts. The group was in the studio in the winter of 2023, working on its first album, which has now been released.

Both French and Canadian, Raph Delaé sails from one landscape to another, somewhere between musical fusion, organic pop, and world music. After “Le Sens de la Dérive”—his first album released under the pseudonym Monsieur Raph, in 2020—, he is embracing a renewed identity, that of Raph Delaé, with “Lignes de Fuite,” a new opus presented in a colourful, tailor-made show.
