Are you looking for fun ways to spend your lunch break this summer? VIVA Vancouver is bringing some fun activity to Helena Gutteridge Plaza with the second annual lunchtime music series, called Street Beats.

Each week, talented, local musicians will perform on the plaza. Different musical genres will be featured including folk, rock, jazz, rap, electronic and more. This series is a great way to discover and enjoy music all summer long.


Ezra Kwizera is an international artist, music producer and community leader. Ezra’s music style is richly multi‐cultural – a zesty yet soulful mix of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo, and Pop. With linguistic agility, Ezra fluidly sings and raps in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili. Growing up as a refugee in Uganda before moving back to his home country Rwanda after the 1994 genocide, Ezra has a powerful motivation to support Rwandans through his music to rebuild their country. His music conveys the spark of an overcomer and the passion of a community leader with a vision to inspire change in his generation. He currently lives in BC, Canada.
