Chui Wan is a four-piece experimental psychedelic rock band from Beijing, China. They get their name from Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi’s Qi Wu Lun, a mystical work on the relationship between nature and human life. The spirit of Zhuangzi’s thought is reflected in the modern Chinese idiom When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein.

Mahogany Frog is an instrumental electronic rock band: Graham Epp (guitar/keyboards/trumpet), Jesse Warkentin (guitar/keyboards), Scott Ellenberger (bass/keyboards/trumpet) and Andy Rudolph (drums/electronics). Their latest release SENNA won Instrumental Album of the Year, and was nominated at the 2014 JUNO Awards.
