About Mixto Festival:
Mixto Festival celebrates a truly intercultural city. It brings together communities, cultures and contemporary experiences in a uniquely celebratory format that avoids presenting “world music” as a static or exotic experience. Instead, cultural diversity is treated as an intuitive and integral part of the city’s multicultural fabric.
About Uma Nota Culture:
Uma Nota is a reference point for world citizens and lovers of music and culture.
Uma Nota Culture is a registered not-for-profit whose mandate is to foster the landscape for diverse music in Canada, and provide creative avenues for expression for both artists and revellers. UNC events are designed to be safe, accessible, friendly, and fun, broadening the audience of under-represented artists, especially those performing music in languages other than English, giving a platform for cross-cultural understanding, and cross-genre experimentation.
UNC was founded in 2007 as a unique monthly event series in west-end Toronto, focusing on Afro-Brazilian, Latin, Caribbean, funk and soul music provided by both live acts and DJs. Uma Nota hosts concerts, festivals, block parties, film screenings, panel discussions, and workshops. Unpretentious, open-minded, lively and fun, Uma Nota is a place where people come together to dance, united by a polyrhythmic, tropical vibe.
Since its inception, UNC has valued community co-presentations, diligently building and maintaining relationships with Toronto’s most important cultural producers. Notable past and current partners include Aga Khan Museum, Luminato, Harbourfront Centre, Lula Music and Arts, Music Gallery, Small World Music, Batuki Music Society, Revolutions Per Minute,Ashkenaz, Manifesto, Tawoos Initiative, Untold Stories, Koffler Centre, Toronto Palestinian Film Festival, and CIUT.
