a.k.a. mutya macatumpag
Mutya is a queer filipino of Spanish and Malayan descent made in the Philippines and born a settler on the unsurrendered and ancestral Coast Salish Territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō, and Tsleil-Waututh traditional peoples.
Mutya is an interdisciplinary professional artist and facilitator who interweaves music, movement, theatre and visual arts within her professional practice as a vocalist, creator, mc, performer, creative empowerment facilitator and event producer.
In sound, Mutya experiments with a keyboard, looper, audio sampling and guitalele, creating a collage of sound landscapes. A vibrato compared to that of Tracy Chapman, Mutya’s voice evokes an ancient remembering, an ancestral stir of emotion that transcends time and grace.
Mutya is enlivened by opportunities to explore authentic exchange, leadership, social justice, and people empowerment and has worked with a variety of intergenerational, intercultural and youth focused organizations across BC, Canada and the US. She is currently with Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE), IndigenEyez, Reel Youth.
Mutya has performed at numerous events and festivals such as Lotus Roots, Asian Heritage Month, Artswells Festival of All Things Art, Verses Festival of Words, BC BUDS, Banff Centre for the Arts, Vancouver International Dance Festival, Vancouver International Story Telling Festival, Vancouver Art Gallery, VIVO, Tiny Tiny Cozy Fest, Queer Arts Festival, Koksilah Music Festival, Vancouver Dyke March, Vancouver Pride, Seattle Pride, Perversite Montreal, New Forms Festival, Nelson Mural Festival, Galiano New Music among many more stages.
