Selkirk College Contemporary Music & Technology Program faculty and students take the stage for a wonderful evening of African-infused music.
The annual concert will raise funds for a new relationship between Selkirk College and the Nyundo School of Art & Music in Rwanda. Established by the Rwandan government to build confidence in musical expression and support professional development, the school is under the direction of Juno Award winning guitarist Mighty Popo. A Rwandan/Burundian refugee who survived the horrors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Popo’s family fled to Canada where he eventually established himself as one of the country’s leading world music performers. Popo and his students will take the stage during this special evening of music at the Shambhala Music & Performance Hall.
Doors open at 7 pm and the show begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets are at the door with a suggested donation of $10.
