Album Notes
Okavango African Orchestra - Africa Without Borders
Winner of the 2017 JUNO Award for World Music Album of the Year

The Orchestra takes its name from the Okavango Delta, a basin in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana,
where different animals, predators and prey, coexist and share meager resources. Similarly,
Okavango African Orchestra brings together the traditional music and instruments of several
major African cultures that historically have had little or no interaction. The musicians of Okavango
create a common meeting place for these disparate cultures, and a new musical language that
harmonizes different tuning systems, rhythms, and timbres.The musicians and instruments of
Okavango represent a continuum of traditions and cultures from time immemorial to the present.
The multicultural spirit of modern-day Canada bridges ancient African solitudes.

Okavango African Orchestra looks ahead on its continuing journey to an “Africa without borders…
before the borders were created”.
