CANADAFRICA featuring Mike Stevens & Okaidja Afroso - Dec. 8
Alianait will complete our 2013 Concert Series with a not-to-be-missed show.
CanadAfrica creates a place for the complex interlocking rhythms of Africa
to meet with the soulful and rich tunes of Blues. And we’ll be adding some
great sounds from Nunavut with Brian Tagalik, Kelly Fraser and
The Inuksuk Drum Dancers.
Thank you Rose Cousins!!
250 folks were thrilled with Rose’s concert on November 2. And more than
100 youth from Nanook & L’Ecole des Trois-Soleils schools were excited
to sing and whistle with her during school workshops.
About 600 Iqalummiut gave Elisapie a standing ovation at her 2 sold-out
shows that took place on October 18 & 19. And about 36 music students
at Inuksuk High were thrilled to experience workshops with Elisapie and
two of her band mates, Manuel Gasse & Hugo Chaput.
225 Iqalummiut were enthralled by this intimate dance created by Sami
dancer & choreographer Elle Sofe Henriksen, presented at Joamie School
on September 21st thanks to generous funding support from the Royal
Norwegian Embassy. And 100 Joamie students shared cultural experiences
with our guest dancers – some learning new dance moves at one of two
workshops and others performing Inuit drum dances, throat singing, games
and Inuktitut songs.
