Friday night of Tallinn Music Week 2024 saw raw, honest performances by Canadian and African artists

“Made In Canada” showcase compilation was a true delight to our ears. From an up-and-rising Canadian RnB artist Nicole Ariana to Aysanabee, a JUNO-winning Oji-Cree singer-songwriter from Canada’s far north. With just an acoustic guitar in his bands, Aysanabee made history in his homeland in less than a year. He became the first indigenous artist to reach the number one spot on the Alternative Rock chart in Canada, and Estonian crowd could see why.

In the meantime, “Africa Now” stage at artistic @Fotografiska cafe gave the festival an in-your-face kick. Following a set by local Afrobeat DJ, French-Senegalese band Poundo took to the TMW stage, resulting in a flood of listeners flying like a moth to a fly to the see their expressive vocalist. While their music takes a bit of getting used to, we couldn’t t take our eyes of her free, liberating natural moves. What a showmanship!
