Miss Tania Lou


Tania Hernandez , a “bawn Jamaican” and citizen of Canada, is a teacher, author, poet, recording artist and Jamaican folklorist. She has delighted crowds in Canada and the USA with songs, poems, stories and skits that reflect the wit, humour and expressions of her Island home. Her recent storytelling and riddles to kids at the Junior Centre  – a division of the Institute of Jamaica, was a hit. Miss Tania Lou, as she is affectionately called, has thrilled the audience at Hamilton’s largest Festival – It’s Your Festival, and at Dundas Cactus Festival. She channels the spirit of her cultural hero, the Rt. Hon. Dr. Louise Bennett Coverley (Miss Lou) and contributes to the preservation, promotion, and performance of artistic expressions of her birth country. Her just released book, One Pot, serves up a delicious stew of humorous true stories from Jamaica and Canada, along with her poems and Jamaican fusion recipe.
