TIKI MERCURY-CLARKE

… in celebration of Black History Month.

This is a performance for all ages.

Tiki Mercury-ClarkeTiki Mercury-Clarke will be recorded by history as one of the all-time greatest Canadian jazz artists. She is a multi-talented Canadian-born singer-pianist, storyteller, lyricist, composer and cultural historian. She has become both a keeper of Afrikan ancestral wisdom and a vessel for the often hard-to-find authentic African-North American musical expression called jazz.

Whether it’s a sultry, edgy jazz event or a storytelling presentation, any performance by Tiki Mercury-Clarke demonstrates why she has been called “the crown jewel in Canada’s diadem of divas”.
