Ruby Singh and the Future Ancestors offer concert at Burnaby

The Vancouver musician and his band will be performing a mix of songs and improvisational pieces that were inspired by many different music genres.
Ruby Singh and the Future Ancestors will be performing in Burnaby this upcoming Friday.

Ruby Singh and the Future Ancestors are bringing their music to Burnaby this upcoming Friday, April 14.

Described by many as "multi-visionary," "mesmerizing" and "vibrant," the group will perform a mix of songs from their latest album, Ruby Singh and the Future Ancestors, and improvisational pieces at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, at 8 p.m. 

Inspired by diverse sounds ranging from Delta blues and Qawaali to the golden era of hip hop, Singh found his own musical identity, which has been defined as a "tapestry of spirit expressed."

His collaboration with Khari Wendell McClelland and Holly Eccleston elevates and embodies the sound of his debut album performance, bringing deep soul and harmony.

The album also showcases the work of Juno Award winner Gord Grdina on oud and guitar, Kenton Loewen on drums, Peter Schmitt on bass and Paul Finlay on turntables.
