Celebrate the richness of Canada’s cultural diversity through art workshops, storytelling sessions, exhibition tours, and a special musical performance by KUNÉ, Canada’s Global Orchestra, which brings together virtuosic musicians from every corner of the globe with Indigenous and Canadian talent.
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.
