Mali Obomsawin Quartet | 2023 Vancouver International Jazz Festival


Sat Jun 24 2023 at 02:15 pm


Vancouver Art Gallery | Vancouver, BC

Award-winning bassist/vocalist/composer Mali Obomsawin couples dissonance with sanctity, Indigenous folk songs from her Odanak First Nation community with cutting-edge modern jazz and improvisation. With Evan Woodle drums, Magdalena Abrego guitar, and Allison Burik reeds, Obomsawin foregrounds distinctly Indigenous contributions to jazz music, giving audiences a unique opportunity to reflect on the Indigenous history of the eastern provinces and coastal US.
The free Downtown Jazz concert series takes place outside the Vancouver Art Gallery and šxwƛ̓ ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ Square on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25. The Georgia Street Stage sits near the corner of Hornby and West Georgia Streets.
