HYMM

From TEDxYYC 2017

Local world fusion music offers modern spin on traditional melodies

HYMM combines traditional melodies from around the world with modern composition to create music that appeals to a wide audience.

If you haven’t heard them around Calgary performing at local venues or events like Stampede or Sled Island, be sure to catch them on the TEDxYYC 2018 stage!
