Okavango African Orchestra concert

Friday, 14 June 2019 21:00 – 23:00
Location: Alliance Francaise Theatre, 24 Spadina Road, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Okavango African Orchestra will perform at the Alliance Francaise Theatre on Friday, June 14, 2019, at 9 PM. Multiple instruments, ten languages, and seven countries define Okavango African Orchestra, winners of the 2017 JUNO Award for World Music Album of the Year.

This special performance will feature songs from their 2017 JUNO winning album along with new compositions recently recorded and to be released this year. Okavango African Orchestra looks ahead on its continuing journey to an “Africa without borders… before the borders were created”. 

The Orchestra takes its name from the Okavango Delta, a basin in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, where different animals, predators and prey, coexist and share meagre resources. Similarly, Okavango African Orchestra brings together the traditional music and instruments of several major African cultures that historically have had little or no interaction. The musicians of Okavango create a common meeting place for these disparate cultures and a new musical language that harmonizes different tuning systems, rhythms, and timbres.
