Shakura S’Aida

Born in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in Switzerland. A long-time Canadian who lives in Toronto.  That’s Shakura S’Aida, a truly international artist whose involvement in the Canadian music scene has been ongoing for the almost 25 years. Along the way, she has enriched the jazz, blues and classic R&B communities with her soulful voice, enthusiastic personality and commitment to her deep soul music.


Neville Bowman Trio

The trio of Neville Bowman, Scott Gamble and Bernie Addington is a group well known to music lovers throughout BC. While they are not in fact a group unto themselves, when people are needing the one of the most accomplished and versatile trios for any event, these three are always put together. Whether working as a foundation trio for such tours as the upcoming Rat Pack Tribute in November, or performing in their own spotlight as a high energy jazz power trio, these three consistently prove you don’t have to be in Toronto or New York to find the highest calibre of musicianship, and they are thrilled to be joining the OSO to perform Oscar Peterson’s Canadiana Suite.
