Joshua Obembe came to the Island as an international student in 2017, and started making music as OBEMBE soon after. He defines his style as 'Afro-fusion', mixing sounds from many different parts of the world into one unique aesthetic. The artist creates a dynamic sound, one that some fans have dubbed "so tropical...it just makes you want to move your body when you hear it."
Follow him on Instagram @helpmefindobembesound and or find his tunes on Spotify, Apple Music, and all music platforms under the name: OBEMBE.
This winter, Confederation Centre is presenting a weekly concert series entitled Tuesday Night LIVE! Each Tuesday night performance sets the spotlight on a different Island artist, offering something new and dynamic on the Centre’s Mainstage.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a receipt from a local restaurant to the show — from that same day — to be entered to win a $50 restaurant gift card. Front-of-House attendants will collect signed receipts pre-show and a live draw will be conducted from the Mainstage.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
