Afroscience at The Cheeky Proletariat

Tonye Aganaba is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and arts facilitator residing on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam & Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Their new body of work, titled AfroScience, is an ongoing exploration of the shared experience and expression of Afro and Indigenous peoples. The 11 pieces in the collection correspond to Tonye's new album ‘Something Comfortable’ - which is an intentional and devotional endeavour inspired by their battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

The album serves as the score to Tonye's ‘AfroScience Project’ an immersive performance and workshop series fusing live music, dance, visual art/digital media and storytelling to stimulate conversation and action around identity, addiction, healing, and expression.
