May 8 – Tash Sultana at the Amp

Tash Sultana is an explosive live reggae-rock artist who has commanded world attention since her homemade acoustic videos went viral. Tash was soon selling out major theaters and arenas globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals. Since Tash’s grandfather gifted her a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style. As one YouTube commenter aptly put it: “It’s like Janis Joplin and Hendrix had a baby, and Bob Marley and Joan Jett had a baby, and those two babies grew up and had a love child.” 

Sultana is a one-woman powerhouse who has mastered over 15 instruments. Her recent accolades include winning an ARIA award for Blues and Roots Album of The Year with “Flow State,” gaining over 500 million streams, topping the iTunes chart in multiple countries, achieving platinum sales for the Notion EP and platinum sales for her single “Jungle,” which also was featured in FIFA 18, and recently playing a stand-out set at Coachella and Lollapalooza 2018.

May 30 – Niki Lopez is the next filmmaker to present inMontage,” a film series at rotating venues in Pompano Beach

“Montage,” a new film series at rotating venues in Pompano Beach on the last Thursday of the month, provides a platform for emerging filmmakers to engage a local following. “Montage” will feature curated film screenings, industry networking events, workshops, artist talks and panel discussions.

The next event in the Montage Series, entitled “What’s Your Elephant?”, is with filmmaker Niki Lopez on May 30. Lopez will screen a short film called “Caressed,” an art film and self-portrait. The mixed-media video installation combines performance art and a poem Lopez wrote about a traumatic childhood memory. Lopez grew up in a cult and endured religious abuse. Lopez said her intention behind the film is not only to share a personal elephant, but to spur discussions surrounding unspoken topics such as abuse, survival and the power of sharing. She hopes to show how arts can be used to heal, empower and educate.
