Concert Description

In partnership with Markham Flato Theatre, we are proud to welcome back the women-led Afro-Cuban roots and jazz ensemble, OKAN! Taking their name from the word for heart or soul in the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria, JUNO-Award winning OKAN fuses Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms in songs about immigration, courage and love. We promise that they will have you dancing in your chairs or on the dance floor, so get ready to move to the music!

This concert is designed to be autism- and neurodiversity-friendly, and Meridian Hall is a wheelchair accessible venue. Bring the whole family! Xenia Concerts welcomes all listeners. 

Do you have a suggestion for how we can make our events more welcoming and accessible? Write to the Xenia Concerts team at info@xeniaconcerts.com or call us at 647-896-8295.

Special thanks to our partners and supporters: Markham Flato Theatre, Hand Over Hand, The Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council, The Toronto Arts Council, The Government of Canada, a donation in honour of the R.S. Williams & Sons Company Ltd., and our donors.
