About the Artists
A founding member of Soul in the City YYC, Lynn Olagundoye is front and centre among the burgeoning number of funk and soul purveyors in Calgary. A session veteran, Olagundoye marries a seductively smooth voice redolent of R&B to a sound that incorporates the best of funk, jazz, Afrobeat, roots-reggae and vintage pop – recalling neo-soul singers like Erykah Badu and Jill Scott.

Titilope Sonuga is an award-winning poet, writer, and performer who renders both in verse and in performance, a remarkable elegance of craft, a quality of rootedness and unflinching womanhood that makes her a leading poetic voice in local and international communities. Her work has been translated into Italian, German and Slovak. Her poetry collection, This Is How We Disappear, and spoken word album Swim are both forthcoming in the spring of 2019.
