MNGWA - A 9-piece collective of Russians, Mexicans and Canadians with vocals in four languages, Mngwa injects the local music scene with a fresh global perspective, mixing elements of Latin, cumbia, dub, funk, reggae and African rhythms.

MELLOMANIC plays a mix of rock, folk, reggae and funk with soulful, interweaving vocals and dynamic, original songs. A group of friends who've been playing music together for ten years, they have a collective passion for music and a collaborative approach to songwriting, resulting in carefully crafted songs that touch on the common themes of our lives. http://www.facebook.com/mellomanic
