It's almost that time of the year again where Saskatoon is full of summer festivals and events. My favorite one would definitely be the Jazz Festival. There is a diverse range of music so that everyone can find something that they will enjoy. The shows that stand out for me include: Macy Gray, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and De La Soul. I will most definitely be attending De La Soul. The group will be playing behind the Delta Bessborough along with Arrested Development on July 2.
De La have been together since 1987. The three members have been together since high school and as far as I know, have never played as a group in Saskatoon. I remember years ago, I was really enjoying old school hip hop and I was led to De La Soul through a Tribe Called Quest. They always have a good beat and some funny rhymes to go along with it.
I hope that everyone will have the chance to make it to a show!
Love the North,
