Toronto’s LAL (Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray) have deep roots in the Canadian scene with eighteen years of creating music and an expansive catalogue of innovative records. LAL’s music is a combination of all the music they love. Formed in 1998 by the dynamic duo of poet, lyricist, activist, singer and Bengali-rooted tough-guy Rosina Kazi and her life partner, producer, sound designer, philosopher, aphorismist and Barbados-born king of chill, Nicholas Murray, LAL always proved hard to describe. They have a long list of accolades, including being featured on the cover of NOW Magazine and in many prominent publications, and have toured both nationally and internationally, sharing the stage with Digable Planets, Tricky, Saul Williams, Nelly Furtado and State Of Bengal.

1.5 hour workshop combining sound making, creative writing and recording. We will work in groups to create and weave our different stories through a collective sound circle (making sounds with our bodies and found sounds) that we will record. We will write on themes we collectively decide upon, practice and record these words in order for them to be recorded over the soundscape we have made. The end result is a sound piece where every participant will get an mp3 copy!
