The Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) is a national service, advocacy and membership organization for those within the performing arts — particularly within dance and theater; but they’ve also developed a reputation for their involvement with musicians and artists who specialize in “world music.” Along with an annual conference, which features discussion panels, lectures, networking sessions and more for artists producing, recording and creating art in an extremely complicated political landscape both here in the States and elsewhere, there are number of curated showcases hosted and/or sponsored by a handful of the city’s major “world music” venues. And those showcases typically feature an incredibly diverse array of artists performing material across an even wider range of styles and genres. Throughout JOVM’s almost nine year history, it’s been an annual tradition that I cover some of APAP’s musical offerings — and they’re often a highlight of the musical year.

Mundial Montreal and DROM teamed up for their eighth annual APAP showcase earlier this year and this year’s showcase featured a wildly eclectic array of artists across Canada and the US playing across a diverse array of genres and styles — including Toronto-based OKAN, Montreal-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Ramon Chicharron, Toronto-based Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter and guitarist Quique Escamilla, Montreal-based desert blues collective Nomad’Stones, Boston-based Italian folk act Newpoli, New York-based voodoo singer/songwriter Malou Beauvoir and Toronto-based, genre-defying brass punk act Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Check out photos from the showcase below.
