Alberta Spotlight: Karella with JusWata and Drew Atlas

The National Music Centre is pleased to present Edmonton soul-soca singer Karella and The Kalabash Band as part of the Alberta Spotlight series.

Karella is a DJ, producer, singer and actress originally from Trinidad, but now based in Edmonton. With roots in soca and calypso, Karella’s music seamlessly blends all aspects of her musical influences. Prepare for a midwinter fête as she heats up the legendary King Eddy stage with ground-shaking openers from JusWata Muzik and Drew Atlas.

Drew Atlas has been one of Calgary’s most prominent urban announcers/DJs in the city since 1995. A Calgary resident since 1989, Drew has helped create some of the most memorable hip hop, R&B and Caribbean programming in the city. As a founding member of Calgary’s BeatMatriX crew, Drew can still be found hosting many ‘urban’ events around town and briefly branched into TV hosting.

Special thanks to the Viewpoint Foundation for their support. Thanks also to media partner BeatRoute and theYYScene.
