Canadian Opera Company | Espiral by OKAN (online)

November 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - May 12, 2022 @ 11:30 pm

Free

With a name that means “heart” in the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria, the Toronto-based women-led group OKAN crafts songs that explore immigration, courage, and love.

Having received JUNO, Canadian Folk Music, and Independent Music Award nominations for their debut album Sombras, OKAN’s sophomore offering, Espiral delves deeper into the group’s rich Cuban roots, finding renewed inspiration in that musical heritage.

In this concert, OKAN performs selections from Espiral, their 2021 Juno Award-winning album, fusing jazz, folk, and global rhythms with Afro-Cuban roots. It’s a performance that draws upon a multiplicity of musical influences and the multicultural mosaic of Toronto.
