Blues on blues with Djely Tapa and Dawn Tyler Watson

Together on stage for the first time, Djely Tapa and Dawn Tyler Watson invite us on a fabulous musical journey into the world of blues. Inspired by African tradition, on the one hand, and traditional American blues on the other, these two accomplished and talented female artists will combine their powerful voices, creativity, musical knowledge and spellbinding stage presence for one spectacular evening.

Both artists are winners of a 2020 Juno Award — Best Blues Album for the incredible Dawn Tyler Watson and Best Global Music Album for the captivating Djely Tapa.

The evening show is a co-creation between two passionate vocalists who, along with their respective accompanying musicians, will come together to honour the origins of the blues.
