Together! A Global Music Experience

Created through The Royal Conservatory of Music as a celebration of Canada’s cultural diversity and pluralism, Kuné showcases their traditional knowledge of music from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and North America. Guests will have the opportunity to see and experience the Sitar, the Oud, the Cajon, the Dizi, the Ngoni and many more.

About KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra

KUNÉ (which means “together” in Esperanto) – 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. The eleven musicians of KUNÉ play a diverse variety of instruments, from the tar of Iran to the bouzouki of Greece to the sitar of Pakistan.
