Enjoy the sensational sounds of Okavango African Orchestra at the Redwood Theatre on Saturday December 2, 2023. Come and celebrate their new album ‘Migration’ with a special concert presentation at a beautiful historic theatre.
Multiple instruments, languages, and countries define Okavango African Orchestra, a Juno award-winning ensemble of eight African-born musicians who live in Toronto and Montreal.
Okavango releases their third album titled ‘Migration’ – Our music is not static, its constantly evolving, and like the animals in the Okavango delta that migrate to greener pastures the music of Okavango endeavours to reach new territory of migration and exploration. We are not just playing music we are introducing new concepts and ideas and ways of working together.
Okavango African Orchestra brings together the traditional music and instruments of several major African cultures, to create a common meeting place and a new musical language that harmonizes different tuning systems, rhythms, and timbres. Okavango represent a continuum of traditions and cultures from time immemorial to the present day.
Okavango African Orchestra looks ahead on its continuing journey to an “Africa without borders… before the borders were created”.
