Sound Bites-Van Women's Ambient Music Tuesday October 29 2019 at 12:00 PM
Tuesday October 29 2019
VWAM was created at the Belvedere Court apartment building in response to the Vancouver housing crisis and as part of the activism against evictions in the Belvedere, which has been home to many artists and musicians over the years. In Spring 2018, residents and friends began meeting twice a month in the Belvedere to create ambient music as a fun and healing community activity, welcoming friends and neighbours. Although VWAM defines itself as a women’s collective, all persons who identify as allies of women are invited to participate. VWAM seeks to remedy the gender imbalance in music by providing an environment where women feel at ease within a male-dominated practice and operates from a belief that everyone is musical, and that musical practice is a vital and essential human experience.
Door Tickets: $10
The band is influenced by bluegrass, folk and pop and puts a heavy emphasis on their vocal harmonies. They have played at the CBC Nooners Concert Series, opened for country artist JJ Shiplet and won the 2018 Emerging Artist award.
