Weekend watch: Ottawa Rhythm Fest
From the sunny shores of the Caribbean to a field adjacent to Kanata and Barrhaven; the first Ottawa Rhythm Fest will kick off Sept 1.
The inaugural event aims to celebrate the best of soul, Latin and Caribbean music. Staged to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Jamaica and Trinidad's independence, the festival will feature artists from these nations and, naturally, plenty of tasty regional treats will be on hand.
If you're looking to jerk a chicken or rage to some raggae, make your way to Twin Elm Rd this weekend.
