ABOUT THE SHOW:
Drawing from their rich musical roots and life experiences, Tonye Aganaba connects with audiences on a deeper level through their music. Tonye is a Black African queer and disabled immigrant living on the unceded ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish & Tsleil-Waututh First Nations (Vancouver). As a non-binary person, Tonye uses they/them pronouns. They proudly trace their ancestral line to the lands known today as Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
Tonye is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and performer. Come ready for a range of groovy, danceable tunes and music that hits the heart, and makes you think. Their style is dynamic and fluid - weaving playful threads of Soul, Neo-Folk, Funk, Hip-Hop and R&B. Tonye is a steadfast fixture in their arts community - and the kind of singer/performer that turns heads wherever they go.
Tonye’s purpose and vision are crystalline. They use their presence on tour to foster meaningful dialogue within communities. They are not only interested in taking music and art to traditional venues but also into schools, community centers, hospitals, prisons, and boardrooms. Places where art can heal, start conversation, and maybe even…. make change.
The Della Herman Theatre is located at 4400 3rd Avenue, Smithers, on the unceded territory of the Gidimt’en Clan of the Witsuwit’en Nation. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
