In association with The Prismatic Arts Festival, the Halifax Urban Folk Festival is proud to present a concert featuring Anyma and Leonard Sumner at The Carleton on Saturday, September 30th. Show time is 2 PM and tickets are $25 + HST for regular buyers, and $15 + HST as a discounted offer for those with less disposable income.
Anyma is a Canadian First Nation singer/songwriter whose work merges elements of Indie, pop, electronic, and orchestral music while incorporating “vivid sounds inspired by her Wendat Nation,” according to her Spotify artist bio. Her debut single, “Circus,” was released in 2020, followed by several additional singles and an EP, HUMANS, in 2021.
Anishinaabe MC/Singer/Songwriter Leonard Sumner‘s storytelling flows directly from the shores of Little Saskatchewan First Nation, located in the heart of the Interlake of Manitoba. Sumner’s self-determined sound is evidence of his ability to simultaneously occupy landscapes of multiple musical genres including; Hip-Hop, Spoken Word, Country, and Rhythm and Blues.
With every vibration of the strings on his guitar, Leonard rattles the dust off truths that have been buried for far too long. On stage he poetically sings awake the consciousness of audiences may have been unaware of their slumber. In this era of unsettling history and healing wounds of the past, Sumner’s music is an expression of medicine that walks the line between fortitude and fragility.
