World Rhythms this April brought to you by Quadra Singers and Friends
Quadra Singers invites you to a musical trip around the globe. Enjoy the journey without jetlag and just the right amount of legroom.
“In these times where many people are uprooted from their homelands and welcomed to new communities such as ours, it is wonderful to give tribute to those who seek refuge from strife,” says choir director Linda Cannon. “We look forward to welcoming our family, friends and neighbours to an evening of music that brings global traditions and cultures that encompass our tiny planet.”
The concert will showcase the talent of Quadra singers and musicians performing traditional songs from Brazil, Jamaica, Wales, Nigeria, South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand and Hawaii.
Guest performers include Quadra Folk Dancers and Drumming by Claudia Raaen
