The 2021 JUNO Award winner for World Music Album, Espiral is an eclectic mix of jazz, folk, and global rhythms released by the Toronto-based, women-led ensemble OKAN. Diving headlong into the group’s Afro-Cuban roots, co-leaders Elizabeth Rodriguez and Magdelys Savigne fuse cross-cultural influences into highly-spirited, wholly unique tunes like the album’s title track.
Originally slated to perform as part of our Free Concert Series in April of 2020, the COC community missed the opportunity to experience OKAN as the world came to a screeching halt just weeks prior. After many delays and reschedules, we are thrilled to finally host this group in the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts' Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre. For a taste of the group’s stunning live presence, check out their Live Video for Espiral track “Trocada.”
Premiering online next Saturday, join us for the unforgettable music stylings of OKAN in Espiral! Sign up today for your Free Digital Membership to enjoy the performance alongside all of our other fall offerings.
