A Summer Celebration of
Music, Dance, Food & Film

Friday, July 5th

 Lemon Bucket Orkestra 8pm

Toronto’s only Balkan-Klezmer-Gypsy-Party-Punk Super-Band! Back by popular demand to open up the Cultura celebrations in their inimitable style.

Nemesis 9pm

Beatboxer Scott Jackson and Electric Violinist Dr. Draw combine their talents to form Nemesis!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse 9:30pm

Miles Morales is a New York teen struggling with school, friends and, on top of that, being the new Spider-Man. When he comes across Peter Parker, the erstwhile saviour of New York, in the multiverse, Miles must train to become the new protector of his city.

6-8pm Programs

Di Zhang

Di Zhang is an emerging yangqin virtuoso active in Toronto’s music scene, who performs with many ensembles (Toronto YueFang Ensemble, Toronto Chinese Orchestra, Melody of Bamboo Ensemble). A rare chance to see her, solo and close-up, with her beautiful Chinese dulcimer.

Dr. Draw

Dr. Draw is known as the first violinist to venture from rock and classical into electronic music culture. His style is difficult to describe as his history with music and culture spans an eccentric lifetime. From playing for royalty in Prague to creating near chaos at the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival to playing luxury brand events like Chloé and Dom Pérignon, Dr. Draw inspires kudos wherever he plays.

Scott Jackson

Scott Jackson lives in a world built by sounds. A door hinge’s squeaky creek, a snare drum’s darting snap, a helicopter’s chopping blades; these are the intricacies he’s made his craft. Internationally renowned as a master of sound and ceremony, Scott Jackson is a beatboxer birthed by hip hop but who stretches the art form’s appeal at every turn.

Dazzling Darren

Dazzling Darren will wheel out his cycle collection just for the Cultura crowd! Watch him ride the most unlikely contraptions, from a tiny to a huge unicycle, a century-old Penny Farthing and many more!
