TORONTO URBAN BOOK EXPO to Feature DJ Majesty & Music Giveaways


TORONTO, ONT (January 2015) - Kya Publishing is pleased to announce that Toronto's DJ Majesty will be providing the musical entertainment and CD giveaways at their second annual Toronto Urban Book Expo on Saturday, February 28 at the Toronto Public Library (Malvern Branch).

DJ Majesty (aka Ryan Lowe) is known for his versatility, and mixing skills in a variety of genres from hip hop to reggae, R&B, soca, old school and pop music. He has created two soundtracks for the stories of Kya Publishing including: The Urban Toronto Tales Soundtrack (8 mixes representing the 8 books in the collection), The Carnival Spotlight Soundtrack (a groovy soca mix highlighting the carnival-themed novel), and the latest promotional mix for the Toronto Urban Book Expo.

"Kya Publishing's slogan is 'Canadian Literature Inspired by Urban Culture' and a huge part of urban culture is the music," said founder, Stacey Marie Robinson. "DJ Majesty has consistently created the perfect soundtracks to my novels, and his musical expertise will set the right mood as participants come to enjoy the urban writers and their books at our book fair."

While the genre of Canadian Urban Fiction is relatively new in Canada, events like the Toronto Urban Book Expo and the participation of urban authors like Kamilah Haywood, Kwame Osei, and Simone DaCosta will help to bring recognition to the talented writers in the city, and their projects.

"It is an honour for me to be a part of this celebration," said DJ Majesty. "We are all artists, whether we DJ and mix music, rap, sing, write books, create artwork, or play instruments. It is important that we work together to keep our culture authentic, and to support the growth of the urban entertainment industry here in Canada."

The Toronto Urban Book Expo takes place from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at 30 Sewells Road at Neilson Road in Scarborough; all ages are welcome to attend and admission is free. For more information, please contact stacey@kyapublishing.com or call 647-342-3040.
