Sook-Yin Lee with Ora Cogan & Pesewa at Centennial United Church's Assembly Room. This is an all ages event!
Sook-Yin Lee

An iconic Canadian media figure, Sook-Yin Lee is an award-winning filmmaker, musician, actor, visual artist and broadcaster who has immersed herself in myriad creative collaborations. Many of them were made with her life partner and frequent co-creator Adam Litovitz, including their 2015 ethereal electroacoustic album jooj. Though Adam passed away in 2019, his work with Sook-Yin lives on with jooj two, an unapologetic dive into playful art-pop and a document of a lost language between lovers. The album will arrive on April 9 via Mint Records.
Originally from Vancouver, BC Sook-Yin was part of the cities alternative music scene with her group, Bob’s Your Uncle which released three albums between 1986 and 1993. In 1995, Lee moved to Toronto to become a VJ on Much Music and hosted the Wedge, in the process becoming an important figure in an iconic era of Canadian alternative music. After leaving Much Music in 2001 Lee acted on many films including The Art of Woo (2001), Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001), Shortbus (2006) and directed two films; Year of the Carnivore (2009) and Octavio Is Dead! (2018).
