Rock violin pioneer playing Rossland Saturday

Kytami is a self proclaimed “violinist extremist” who pushes the lines between different genres of music.

Self-proclaimed “violinist extremist” Kytami will play the Miners’ Hall Saturday in Rossland.

Get ready to dance as The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) is welcoming the experimental ‘rock violin pioneer’ and founding member of Delhi 2 Dublin  to the Rossland Miners’ Hall on Saturday, Jan.19.

Kytami is a self proclaimed “violinist extremist” who challenges the lines between classical and electronic, ancient and new age, synthetic and organic. Kytami has been dubbed a ‘music revolutionary’ and has been summoned to bring her violin thunder to audiences as far reaching as Taiwan, Dubai and Berlin.

Through an alchemy of classical fiddle styles fused with the heavy bass elements of Dubstep and Hip Hop,

Kytami has managed to soar above not only the constraints of musical genre and labeling, but has forged a path so bold and unique that she is regularly dubbed Canada’s most diverse and engaging fiddle player.

Kytami is internationally renowned for one thing: she rocks the fiddle like a woman possessed and the audience dances to match.

From Germany to Hong Kong and Joshua Tree Festival to Shambhala, one thing is affirmed at Kytami concerts time and again: If you dare witness this violin diva take the stage, be prepared to wear through not only the soles of your dancing shoes, but perhaps the version of reality you brought to the door.

Kytami will perform on Saturday, January 19 at the Rossland Miners’ Hall. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance at Out of the Cellar on Columbia Avenue in Rossland. $2 off for RCAC members. Please no minors. For more information on the RCAC winter performance series and Kytami, visit www.rosslandcac.com.
