ENJOY THIS BEAUTIFUL FREE ONLINE CONCERT IN CELEBRATION OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Pianist, organist and composer Rashaan Rori Allwood, and vocalist, multi-keyboardist, composer and sound designer Yanick Allwood combine their talents to demonstrate how modern Black artists have always used music and story-telling to nurture our culture and give a voice to our people.
The brothers welcome a guest performer from British Columbia, award–winning performance artist, Shayna Jones, who has been keeping the important tradition of African storytelling alive through her performances across Canada.
They tell stories through the songs of some of our past and contemporary Black icons including Stevie Wonder, Mahalia Jackson, Donny Hathaway, Solage, and include their own compositions. Then they invite local elder, music producer and jazz pianist, Eddie Bullen, to share his wisdom.
It is our great pleasure to continue to offer our audiences the important opportunity to witness generations of our rich Black musical heritage and to discover great Black artists of the past, present and the future.
This program is part of the TD 2022 Black History Month Series.
