Expression Collective

Expression Collective—who plays in Rossland this weekend—believes in the influence that music has towards creating cultural awareness.

Knowledge of the Arts does not belong only to the nation from which it came, it belongs to us all.

Expression Collective—who plays at Drift Itzakaya this Saturday night—believes in the influence that music has towards creating cultural awareness.

Music and the arts are a gateway to knowing ourselves; a window to the soul.

To know ourselves is why music is so important in the world today. This is the intention the group plays with.

The expression collective is a five-piece band that performs indigenous songs in various languages that represent the people of the world. They combine these traditional songs with upbeat rhythms and three part harmonies. As well, they write and perform original music.

The Collective is based in the Okanagan. They travel the province, performing on outdoor stages and at festivals in the summertime.  In the winter they perform at house concerts, carnivals and in schools for BC artists in residency programs.

They are a group who truly shares the greater goal of re-connecting us all to the world we live in together.

Each song brings new musical roots to experience, as well as the cultural origins from which the songs were born.

The band consists of vocalist and percussionist, Angela Roy, vocaist and percussionist, Megan Hunter,

vocalist, guitarist and banjo player, Moot, bass and stand up bass, Steve Gosselin, drum kit, cajon and percussionist, Conner Mitchell-Zaphon Johnston.
