Join us in celebrating Kytami’s solo album release. Past member of Delhi 2 Dublin.
Kytami is a violinistextremist. Perhaps Canada’s most diverse and engaging fiddle player, she is an unbelievably energetic performer. Kytami can bound between classical and fiddle styles, match them to heavy bass and electronic dance beats and then effortlessly cross genres to combine her skills and sound with the pounding of skins in punk and metal.
With her abilities, style and devilish smile, she has won over audience after audience, appearing at most major festivals across Canada and in the Western U.S. as well as performing overseas in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Germany and Dubai. Kytami has appeared on albums by The Swollen Members and The Rebel Spell, collaborated with bands such as the dancehall/hip-hop group Third Eye Tribe, Goatsblood and legendary dub producer The Mad Professor and has also co-written two albums and toured extensively with the multi-cultural, award-winning band Delhi 2 Dublin.
