Event

Yamantaka//Sonic Titan at the Queer Arts Festival
Presented in partnership with the Powell Street Festival

"One of the most exciting bands on the planet."  NOW Magazine (Toronto)

Founded in late 2007 by performance artists Alaska B and Ruby Kato Attwood, YT // ST is an Asian, Indigenous and Diasporic experimental Art and Music Collective. Montrealers have known them to put on dazzling musical theatre performances in giant monochrome paper sets, sometimes in far out places, like the Montreal Eaton Centre Food Court at 2AM.

Aesthetically, they blend the diverse styles of Noh, Chinese Opera, Chinese, Japanese and First Nations Mythology, Black & White Television, Psychedelia and Rock Operatics into a sensory feast. Leaders of the new Canadian vanguard, Polaris Prize shortlisters YT//ST will bring their trademark hand-painted sets, Noh inspired face make up, and unique hand-built musical instruments to the Queer Arts Festival for an enlightening concert. Is Vancouver ready? That remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure  this performance will be out of this world!

About their 2011 album, YT//ST:
"This is the kind of record that happens when city dwellers in two of the most multicultural urban areas of the world mix up gender, culture and genre with a sense of urgency. This sounds like the birth of a new culture."  David Dacks, Exclaim!
