The Stew Jams is a monthly hip-hop night centred around improvisation with a live band. Vocalists and MCs from the community are welcome to step to the mic (as long as they respect the stew etiquette) and share their truth and energy. Each night features guest DJs, artists, dancers and performers who are selected because they share a vibration of empowerment.
From this Stew Jam emerged a collective of vocalists and musicians who represent by the same name on festival stages and at local showcases. As a collective family, The Stew Jams plays with the art of freestyle and improvisation. Their performance is a blend of rap, RnB, and neo-soul served up with an organic spontaneity that is directly inspired by Grass-roots Hip-hop and Jazz culture.
