Whether you’re taking part in the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word or not (and you definitely should! There has been a week of great performances, and there’s still a chance!), the after party at the Red Papaya is not to be missed!
The Soul Motivators will take the stage with their infectious funk groove. The band has shared the stage with hip hop luminaries Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa.
They’ll be showing off the powerful vocals of Shahi Teruko, as well as the power of their nine-piece lineup. They bring back a classic sound, blending 1970’s funk and soul, psychedelia and hip-hop. Being in the same room as a strong horn section, is something that can ONLY be experienced live. They will dare you not to dance.
