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.
