"Rock The Shores"

Kytami, the Vancouver-born electric fiddle wizard, was entertaining enough.

And then SpaceBoots came on.

“Let’s hear it for SpaceBoots!” screamed Kytami’s DJ.

There were cheers from a thousand people gathered in front of the Rock the Shores stage under blues skies and sunshine. A gaggle of guitar-wielding dudes in tights and helmets, SpaceBoots commenced power-chording as Kytami sawed away on her black violin. Even better, one of the SpaceBooters, banging a red tambourine, climbed up the shoulders of his buddy, who was mightily smiting a cowbell.

That’s the way it was at Rock the Shores late Friday afternoon. Organizers touted it as the largest local music event in Vancouver Island history. People in tank tops and ball caps wandered around grinning beatifically. A three-year-old girl in a blue princess dress, wearing earmuff hearing protectors, pranced merrily. Thirsty audience-goers forked out $10 and $8 for plastic glasses of cider and beer.

Kytami, a sprite-like violin phenom in black hot pants, offered a new-age/traditional fiddle set, backed by DJ cranking out a torrent of electronic and hip-hop. At times, he exhorted celebrants to party even more heartily: “I forgot to tell you, the more noise you make, the harder she plays!” - Times Colonist


"Kytami - Remixed Review"

A truly dynamic artist, Victoria’s Kytami is a classically trained violinist who has delved deep into the realms of hip hop and electronic dance music. A former member of Vancouver’s Delhi 2 Dublin the music this pixie powerhouse puts out really packs a punch.

Here we have a handful of tracks from her self titled 2012 release reworked and reimagined by several of Canada’s cutting edge producers and DJs. - BC Musicians Mag

Bio

If a line exists between classical and electronic, between ancient and new, synthetic and organic, Kytami has sliced them all using only a violin bow...but what more does she need?
Apparently nothing at all, as Kytami has already been dubbed a 'music revolutionary' by What's Up Magazine USA, won “Live Act of The Year” at the Vancouver Island Music Awards and “Electronic/Dance Recording of the Year” at the 2013 Western Canadian Music Awards. She has been summoned to bring her violin thunder to audiences as far reaching as Taiwan, Singapore and Dubai. Through an alchemy of classical and fiddle styles fused with the heavy bass elements of Drum n Bass and Hip Hop, Kytami has managed to soar above the constraints of musical genre and labeling. 
So what can you expect at a Kytami show? Well let's start by straightening that out actually, the girl doesn't play shows, she detonates dance floors. Kytami is internationally renowned for one thing: She rocks the fiddle like a woman possessed... and the audience dances to match.
