Cornwall Ontario — Here is a Seeker Snapshot of Animalia playing the Killing Yr Joy Tour at The Art Gallery of Cornwall.
About thirty people gathered in a dimly lit room for a unique concert experience Wednesday night. The only luminescence during the concert was from a single back light on the floor and the light beaming from a projector on a screen playing a series of bizarre artsy images.
There were many talented musicians playing a variety of musical genres and styles during this low-fi production at Cornwall’s downtown art hub; from electronic, to rap, to indie rock. However in this journalist’s humble opinion Amimalia stole the show.
Amimalia has a powerful voice and sings with purpose and determination. Her body movements on stage are fluidic and energetic and are well synchronized with the tone of her voice. She shows maturity and confidence not often found in younger musicians. By the end of her set she left the audience yearning for more.
Hopefully more concerts like this one can happen here in the future.
