In celebration of Black History Month^ and the influence that black artists have had on the evolution of music for more than a century, Cantabile is proud to present Voices of Unity: Songs of the African Diaspora. Each piece featured in Voices of Unity has been carefully selected to chronicle the evolution of musical identity in Black culture. 

For this concert, Cantabile welcomes Toronto-based guest artists Justine Owen and Tracey Soman. Both classically-trained artists, Justine and Tracey combine their talents as the multi-talented R&B duo SWN. Together with SWN, Cantabile's choirs present a wide variety of music – West African folksongs, Spirituals, Ragtime, Calypso, SOCA, R&B, Rock and Roll, Reggae, and Hip Hop – that expresses both the joys and the traumas of the African diaspora.

^ Cantabile's Voices of Unity concert was originally scheduled for February, but postponed to March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
