Local Ottawa Artist Jah’Kota Slated to Perform for the Boys and Girls Club

A core belief at Lixar is that music and creativity are key drivers for sustainability and vibrancy in our cities, which is why we are always looking for great ways to engage and support our community.

Whenever possible, Lixar is proud to support the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa (BGCO) through various events and fundraising initiatives. This Friday, February 9, Lixar is honored to be joined by Jah’Kota for an intimate BGCO-only MEGAPHONO showcase. Lixar is extremely grateful to Jah’Kota, who is in the midst of a busy schedule, for taking the time to share his positive messages and give back to the local youth.

Lixar Presents: MEGAPHONO. Jah'Kota at the Boys and Girls Club

Originally from Winnipeg, Jah’Kota now resides in Ottawa (a proud local of ‘Eastboro’), where he aims to inspire and spread positivity through his talent, music, and entrepreneurship.

Of Jamaican and Nakota First Nation, Jah’Kota is heavily engaged with youth and aims to help other young Indigenous peoples break into the music industry. He has also kicked off the Indigenize High School tour alongside four others, aiming to help educate students on Indigenous topics and history through music and culture as their response towards Reconciliation.

BCGO’s goal is to work with youth to develop social skills, build strong and production community members, and encourage positive relationships. Accessible to all community boys and girls aged six to eighteen, the BCGO aims to provide a safe, supportive space that allows members to overcome barriers and explore new opportunities. Jah’kota’s performance and his positive, community-minded message is sure to be a highlight for the kids.
