Okavango African

From the Promoter

This special performance will feature songs from their 2017 JUNO winning album along with new compositions 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 meager 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.
