One hour concert; no intermission


Njacko Backo is a singer, songwriter, storyteller and percussionist originally from Cameroon. Nominated for a 2021 Juno for Best Children’s Album, Njacko’s concerts are filled with energy designed to get children – and their adults! – up on their feet and grooving to the music. Join him with his quartet “Kalimbas at Work” for a lively family-friendly show geared to ages 2+. Filled with positive song, this concert will inspire audiences to take pride in the tremendous diversity of Canada – from coast to coast to coast! You’ll discover a range of African instruments – from the kalimba and ngoni, to percussion instruments all kinds.

This presentation is made possible with the support ofOntario Arts Council Logo
