When Kelly Bado released her album, Hey Terre, last October, it was a bittersweet moment for the award-winning Francophone artist. Covid-19 restrictions forced her to mark the moment from afar, with a virtual performance we're now pleased to present.

As an African immigrant living in Winnipeg, Kelly is inspired by the music and cultures she has discovered in her travels to create her own blended sound.
