DO THE ROB FORD!

“There are not many things one should learn from Rob Ford. But sometimes, when the world has you down, when you feel there is no where to go, when all life is handing you lemons – it is important to remember that there is always a way out. That we can laugh away our sorrows, be ridiculous just because. Rob Ford represents a lot of bad things but we feel the one thing we can take away from his example, is letting go. Go all out, without regard or hesitation.” – Ian Keteku.

If you wanna get it crackin’ just do the Rob Ford!

Alice Russell (U.K.)
A key figure on the British soul scene, Alice Russell is pure natural talent, a natural presence, a force of nature. She was already a hot item before releasing her fifth album, 2013’s To Dust. Her performance draws comparisons to Aretha Franklin, she has collaborated with everyone from Mr. Scruff to David Byrne and she tours with producer Quantic in his Soul Orchestra. Unfazed by taking to the spotlight after a sober Amy Winehouse or joining Roy Ayers live for Everybody Loves The Sunshine, there’s no wonder her powerful soul voice has attracted rave reviews from numerous national and international publications and praise from fans as diverse as Gilles Peterson, Massive Attack’s Daddy G, and Groove Armada. She brings her stripped down six-piece band for this Uma Nota Festival World Soul performance.

Phil Motion & The Easy Lo-Fi
This Ottawa five-piece dirty funk outfit features the unique energy of a frontman on drums and vocals (Souljazz Orchestra’s Phillippe Lafreniere) backed by the grooviest bass and guitar and a hard-hitting two-piece horn section. Phil Motion’s recent inspirations are Latin boogaloo and ‘60s samba-funk and the guys are cooking up some new gems à la Jorge Ben & Gilberto Gil as a special tip of the hat to the Uma Nota massive. This is their first Toronto appearance.

Marques Toliver
Singer, classically trained violinist and beat-maker Marques Toliver left music school at an early age and moved to New York City, where members of TV on the Radio discovered him busking in 2009. He has since moved to London, toured with Holly Miranda and now counts Adele among his fans. He released his debut full length album Land of CanAan earlier this year.

DJ General Eclectic
Uma Nota’s co-founder is our resident DJ, expert vinyl collector, visual genius and lover of all things funk, soul and polyrhythmic. His funk and soul cuts are just a fraction of the wealth of music at this man’s fingertips, which include thousands of records in dozens of genres, spanning various decades, countries and musical styles. The General always keeps the dancefloor lively.
