Project Description

KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra

Together! A Global Music Experience – Virtual or In-Person Performance

Kuné’s fun and interactive performance presents short videos of their songs combined with live introductions and commentary by four of their members that explore Canada’s cultural diversity and pluralism. Students will hear music from Latin America, Africa and the African Diaspora, the Middle East, Asia, and North America as the artists share their traditional knowledge of the music from these regions. In the commentaries you will learn about where each artist is from, what languages they speak and how they sound, what instruments they play and how they work and they will answer any questions you may have, during a live Q&A section. 

The in-person show will be a live concert version of this program.

About KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra

KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra – was developed from a major initiative by The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto to explore and celebrate Canada’s cultural diversity and pluralism. The ensemble seeks to communicate in ways that words, politicians, and spiritual leaders cannot, and help to find a common language through music. The musicians hail from all corners of the globe—from Peru, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Ukraine, and beyond—and play instruments as diverse as they are, from the tar of Iran to the bouzouki of Greece to the sitar of Pakistan.

KUNÉ (which means “together” in Esperanto) released their debut Album on Universal Music Canada in April 2018 and will embark on their first US tour in the 19-20 Season.
