Introducing Salt Spring singer Renée Layla, Festival Afloat 2022 performer!
Catch Renée Layla aboard the Providence July 14-16th for the Festival Afloat 2022 Salish Sea Tour. Renée Layla’s swoon-worthy vocals will be drawing in listeners in their canoes, kayaks, paddle boards or on shore for the Gulf Island segment of Festival Afloat.
I am so thrilled to be a performer for Festival Afloat. What an incredible opportunity for such a unique way of delivering a concert, while supporting Indigenous sovereignty and access to justice. Decolonization is an ongoing process and the work has only just begun. We all have a responsibility to recognize and act on the importance of Indigenous cultural traditions and the rights that Indigenous people have to their land and resources. Justice for clean drinking water, healing multi-generational trauma from Residential schools, land rights, access to language and culture – these are all reasons why it is such an honour to be involved in such a meaningful project with RAVEN.Renée Layla
