Here comes Canadian band Ask Your Sister
Canadian band Ask Your Sister will perform soul, jazz and pop at Brown Sugar Jar in Futian District on Thursday.
Formed by Ariana Flinn, Sahara Jane, Kamila Nasr and Andy Flinn, Ask Your Sister’s music is very charming. Their special singing, performing and dancing often makes audience members from different age groups and background dance together.
