Today’s Backstage, Sanctuary Pre-order, new Video, and gigs!

Hello Friends! Hope you are well! Today’s instalment of Backstage features exceptional flautist Anh Phung from our Refuge album playing a couple songs live, nerding out on some cool looping tech, and talking about music.

There are no actual tickets, simply join the Livestream at noon EST


And super fun news!

SANCTUARY, our highly anticipated followup to our album Refuge, is now available for Pre-Order at this link! This ambitious, diverse, inclusive and passionately artistic album puts our band face-to- face with a VIP roster of global ‘ambassadors’, some of whom are recent immigrants and refugees to Canada, as well as important Indigenous voices.  All are masters of world music that tell the story of how to communicate with others through the global language of sound.
