Kobo Town is a Toronto based band led by Trinidadian-Canadian singer/songwriter Drew Gonsalves. Their music blends calypso vibes with hip hop, reggae, zouk, and spoken word. Within the past few years, they've been longlisted for the Polaris Prize, nominated for JUNO Awards, and have travelled the globe performing their energetic, rhythmic, and poetic music.
Opening for Kobo Town is Thompson Wilson. Thompson has performed in the area a little bit, and is an awe-inspiring songwriter and musician. As the son of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings' Tom Wilson, Thompson has the great Canadian songwriting spirit in his blood. He and his father co-wrote Blackie and the Rodeo Kings' latest single, "Beautiful Scars" which features City and Colour.
This is sure to be a beautiful evening of music. Check it out at the Blue Mountain Village Coca-Cola Stage (right in the middle of the village) on Friday, August 4th, from 7-10pm.
