Kimiko Dorey キミコ・ドレイ

Location: Street Stage (Jackson Ave & Alexander St)

This is Kimiko’s first time performing at Powell Street Festival and is honored to be here. Kimiko’s performance is a blend of narrative rich songs and memorable melodies. Her performances aim to be vulnerable and heartfelt, an opportunity to slow down and find connection in our busy lives.

Kimiko Dorey is a hafu vocalist hailing from Vancouver. Growing up, Kimiko attended Japanese Language School, and at the same time, began studying voice. As a teen both areas of study were abandoned; however, she is on a journey to reclaim her Japanese heritage and her voice. She is proudly Sansei, a social justice educator, plus model, soloist for YVR Pop Choir, and dog enthusiast.
